  • To co-operate with all whose aims and interests are wholly or in part related to those of the society.
  • To provide facilities for social intercourse between the members and arrange lectures, debates and meetings calculated to further the objects of the Society.

For a British cinematographer, membership of the BSC is an affirmation of the high standard of their craft. The members of the British Society of Cinematographers are entitled to use BSC as postnominals in motion picture and television credits.
