BAFTA said in a statement, “This significant change demonstrates BAFTA’s intention to take a leading role, together with our key partners, in increasing the representation of under-represented groups in front of and behind the camera.” These rules will be in force 2019 onwards. The new rules dictate that films have to increase diversity in on screen representation, themes and narratives, project leadership and creative practitioners, industry access and opportunities and opportunities for diversity in audience development.
