Following this evening’s AGM, BAFTA is delighted to confirm that Sara Putt has been appointed BAFTA’s new chair, taking over the role from Krishnendu Majumdar and having served as deputy chair for two years.

The results of the Sector Committee and Council elections have also been confirmed. The newly elected and re-elected Sector Committee candidates are as follows:

Congratulations to Sara and to everyone elected this year. 82 candidates stood for election this year, the most we’ve ever had, and we’re grateful that so many of you are willing to give your time to volunteer for BAFTA.

Now that our Sector Committees and Council have been formed, the Film and TV Committees will elect their chairs and deputy chairs in the summer (the Games Committee’s chair and deputy chair will remain in post for another year). The first committee meetings will begin in September, at the start of the new Awards season. The newly elected chairs will also sit on the Board of Trustees, whose final list of members will be announced later in the year.
