We are delighted to see Anna Higgs re-elected as our film committee chair and to welcome Hilary Rosen to the chair of the television committee for the first time. Together with Tara Saunders, who chairs BAFTA’s games committee, and our deputy chairs Emily Stillman for film, Christine Healy for TV and Des Gayle for games, our committees play a central role in ensuring BAFTA’s activities, including our world-leading awards, support and spotlight the screen industries and the talented people within them.”
