Bafta-winning games producer Romana Ramzan and lawyer Anwen Griffiths have been appointed to the British Film Institute’s (BFI) board of governors.

Ramzan, a producer at games development studio No Code Studio in Glasgow, will act as Scotland governor while Griffiths, who is partner at law firm Lee & Thompson LLP, will be the Wales governor. 

This is the first time BFI have appointed national representatives. Ramzan and Griffiths will act as full governors with a specific interest and emphasis in their respective nations.

They will both serve a term of four years starting from May 9 2022.

Tim Richards, chair of the BFI, worked with the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) on the recruitment process. Their appointments have also both been approved by the Welsh and Scottish governments. 

Robin Saunders, Andrew Smith and Phil Stokes have also been reappointed for another four-year term.

The announcement follows the appointment of Netflix’s Scott Stuber, producer Elizabeth Karlsen and filmmaker Edgar Wright, among others last month.
