BIFA's first Board was appointed in June 2015. The makeup of the current Board will be the model for future years: filmmakers, a distributor and one spot reserved for an expert in a field other than film. BIFA Co-Founder Elliot Grove has a permanent seat. Board members will serve fixed terms, with the distributor role rotated regularly.

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 over the voting process.
