Majumdar

Cofounder, Me+You Productions / Chair, BAFTA

Since being named chair of BAFTA in June 2020, Majumdar has led a thorough review of the British org’s awards program, implementing 120 changes to its voting, membership and campaigning processes. It’s all part of his larger reappraisal of the values and culture of BAFTA, as he works to address the lack of equality of opportunity in the U.K. film industry. He oversaw the final stages of the redevelopment of BAFTA’s London headquarters in Piccadilly, which officially opens in early 2022. On top of this, he still has his day job co-running the independent Me + You Productions with Richard Yee, which saw him producing the second season of the BAFTA-nominated drama series “I Am” for Channel 4.
