Calling all Final Year Film & Television Design Students

Over the last few months, The British Film Designers Guild have been focussing on how they can help to make the Art Department and the Guild more inclusive.

Back in July 2020 we started by making the Guild more accessible by simplifying our joining and accreditation process and our next step is to roll out Student Membership, for final year Film and Television Design Students.

That is now a reality. Welcome to our Student Membership page!
