The UK film craft guilds are independent groups of professionals. They recognise craft excellence and work to maintain the highest professional standards within their departments.
Membership of a guild is not mandatory to work in the UK.
Members of a guild are nominated by existing members or invited to join by the guild's governing body. This ensures only high quality professionals are admitted.
The individual guilds are funded by member subscriptions and by corporate sponsorship. These guilds are not linked in any way to unions operating within the UK film industry.
In order to maintain standards CGGB and the individual guilds have become increasingly involved in training for newcomers and members already working in the industry.
CGGB was active in promoting separate BAFTA awards ceremonies for feature films and television productions - raising the profile of the Craft Awards in both media.
