Reporting to BSF CEO Pete Johnson, Kent is charged with working closely with the organisation’s membership of around 100 senior executives.

Her remit also includes enhancing the BSF’s contribution to the UK public policy debate.

The London-based BSF was founded to enhance the prosperity of the UK’s screen sectors by working with members to influence policy.

The organisation also organises the annual British Screen Forum Conference.

Kent takes up her new role later this month, in time for a private BSF roundtable with Labour MP Thangam Debbonaire, the Shadow Secretary of Culture, Media and Sport.

She is an experienced media policy strategist, whose career has included senior in-house police roles at and Warner Bros Discovery.

Pete Johnson said: “We are delighted to have secured such an experienced and effective policy specialist with a wealth of knowledge of the sector.

“I’m very confident that our ability to serve the policy-related interests of our members, and of the sector as a whole, will be greatly enhanced by her contribution.”

Kent said: “The screen sectors are vital to the cultural and economic life of the UK and I am passionate about supporting the excellent content they create.

“I look forward to working with British Screen Forum members and with decision makers to ensure there is a supportive policy environment that enables the UK screen sectors to continue to thrive.”
