The British Film Designers Guild has worked hard on 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 the last step was to roll out Student Membership, for final year Film and Television Design Students.
That is now a reality. Welcome to our Student Membership page!
Years Of History
As a final year Film and Television Design student, joining the British Film Designers Guild will bring you into direct contact with the key players of current UK Art Departments, from all types of productions whether it’s big-budget features, high-end TV series or independent Art House cinema.
Stand out in a crowded field by networking with Art Department professionals to help get your career off the ground.
BFDG Student Membership gives you all the benefits of full membership, (excluding insurance) at a total cost of £50 for the first 12 months*.
*After 12 months you can apply to upgrade your membership to Newcomer level.
