Deadline: Midday, 13 December 2021


Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival (BFMAF) is seeking a new Chair of its Board of Trustees. Huw Davies, the current Chair and Festival Co-founder, will step down at the end of February 2022.

The impact of Huw’s contribution of over 18 very dedicated years of service to the Festival is immeasurable. The appointment of a new Chair creates an opportunity for another powerful advocate to support the ongoing articulation and achievement of its strategic aims, vision and ambitions.

The Chair will work closely with BFMAF’s Festival Director and, supported by Trustees, advise on key stakeholder relationships as well as the financial, strategic and HR management of the organisation. Their leadership, networks and commitment will bring new perspectives to the Festival, support its staff and ensure its sustainable development.

In recognition of our aims as an organisation and the heterogeneity of the Festival’s audiences and participants we encourage applications for Chair from disabled and neuro-divergent people, global majority candidates, those who identify as LGBTQI+, people from low-income backgrounds, women and younger people too.

The Festival welcomes applications from Northumberland, the North of England, Scotland and across the UK.

Trustee meetings and the Chair’s involvement in the organisation will at times be in person as well as online. Meetings currently proceed online.
