About

Voters

We have nearly 700 registered voters (so far – if you’re interested in becoming a voter, have a look here). Each year around 300 volunteer to watch, discuss and vote on the entered films to reach the year’s nominations – we call this the BIFA Screening Group. They are split into smaller subgroups to focus on a particular category, like Debut Director. Each subgroup functions like a jury for its category, but it shares its recommendations and comments with other groups.

The screening group is overseen by the Nomination Committee, which comprises the chairs of the sub-groups and other industry figures.
