British Independent Film Awards BIFA

Celebrating 20 years of the best British Independent Film


The Board oversees, steers and advises the BIFA team on all aspects of BIFA's year-round activity, as well as The British Independent Film Awards. They have no influence on the voting process. 

BIFA's first Board was appointed in June 2015 and it was enlarged in 2017. The Board comprises: filmmakers, a distributor, marketing and publicity professionals and one spot reserved for an expert in a field other than film. BIFA Co-Founder Elliot Grove has a permanent seat and the executive directors of the Awards also sit on the Board. Board members will serve fixed terms, with the distributor role rotated regularly.
