The article says:
"In an incredibly bold move, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts announced last week that, beginning in 2019,works that do not demonstrate inclusivity in their production practices will no longer be eligible for its annual awards, the BAFTAs, often considered the U.K. equivalent of the Oscars. Eligible projects must showcase this in two of the following ways, as the BBC reported: On screen characters and themes, senior roles and crew, industry training and career progression, and audience access and appeal to underrepresented audiences. BAFTA will also remove the requirement that newly admitted voters be recommended by two existing members."
The BBC states:
"To be eligible for the two awards, films must prove they have worked to improve diversity in two of the four following areas:
- On-screen characters and themes
- Senior roles and crew
- Industry training and career progression
- Audience access and appeal to under-represented audiences
The measures comply with the diversity standards the BFI (British Film Institute) uses to guide its activities and the projects it funds. The changes show Bafta's determination "in increasing the representation of under-represented groups in front of and behind the camera", a statement said."
I am looking forward to Econ JM papers 5-10 years from now...
