Naman Ramachandran New BAFTA chair Sara Putt has reflected upon the events of the past weekend in her first letter to members.

While not addressing Russell Brand – about whom allegations of rape and sexual assault emerged over the weekend – by name, Putt wrote: “This weekend’s news has again raised serious questions about the culture of the screen industries and what still needs to change.

BAFTA is supportive of the creation of CIISA, an independent standards authority for those working in the creative industries and I encourage you to find out more about their plans.

As a reminder, it is now mandatory for U.K. productions to have a bullying and harassment policy in order to enter our film, games and television Awards, building on principles and guidance on the prevention of bullying and harassment in the workplace as set out here.” Putt also addressed the ongoing Hollywood strikes, writing: “Harnessing the talents of our global membership, I want BAFTA to take its place as a thought leader, change creator and convener of debate on what’s important to you.
