BAFTA has appointed Emma Baehr to the role of director of awards, a new position in which she will oversee all five of the organization’s London-based ceremonies, including the main British Academy Film Awards held in February.
She reports to CEO Amanda Berry, BAFTA said on Wednesday.
“The director of awards role is a key one for BAFTA,” Berry said. “Emma will ensure the awards continue to be delivered to the very highest standard, maximizing the impact of the awards on our ever-growing international audiences whilst helping to identify new business and revenue opportunities.”

She added: This appointment will allow me to move away from day-to-day management of the awards and broaden my remit across the organization.”
Baehr joins BAFTA’s senior management team whose members also include Berry, Clare Brown, director of production; Gilly Burgess, director of finance; Tim Hunter, director of learning and events; COO Kevin Price; and Julian Shaw, director of BAFTA 195 Piccadilly.
In another move, Jim Bradshaw, BAFTA’s head of membership, also becomes acting head of film with responsibility for the British Academy Film Awards, BAFTA said. Baehr had previously filled the role of acting head of film.
