Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival (BFMAF) is seeking new board members and a Chair to join our voluntary board.

Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival has been running for 18 years. Through a combination of vision and energy from the Board, the skills of the team and unwavering support from funders, the Festival has grown into one of the go to festivals for new cinema and artists’ moving image in Europe, with ever increasing numbers of contributors and visitors from the UK and around the World.

Due to retirement by rotation, the Festival is seeking to recruit some new Board Members with a variety of skills, backgrounds and interests, who can add value to the management and presentation of the Festival over the coming years. Lack of knowledge of film or the arts should not be seen as a barrier to application as we seek a broad representation of society at board level to ensure we understand and maximise opportunities and access for all – amongst contributors, staff and audiences. To achieve this we welcome applications for Board Members from all walks of life including people from low-income backgrounds and younger people.

See below for our full person specification.

The Festival welcomes applications from those based in Berwick, Northumberland, the North of England, Scotland and across the UK. The deadline for notes of interest is Wednesday 31 May 2023, midday (13:00).
