BFI Diversity Standards

The BFI Diversity Standards encourage equality of opportunity and address under-representation in the screen industries.

The Standards are a flexible framework which can be used for feature films, online and broadcast television content and a range of audience-facing activities such as film festivals, distribution releases and ambitious film programmes. They are a contractual requirement for all BFI funding, including fiction and documentary films funded via the BFI’s partners.

To achieve the Standards, projects must demonstrate commitment to inclusion and meet the criteria in at least two of the following four areas: A) on-screen representation, themes and narratives B) creative leadership & project team C) industry access &opportunities and D) audience development.
