Latest news about Breakthrough Brits 2014, BAFTA’s initiative to support and celebrate up-and-coming British talent.
Launched in 2013 in partnership with Burberry, Breakthrough Brits showcases and supports the next generation of British creative talent in film, TV and games.
Each year, up to 20 on-screen and off-screen talented newcomers are selected by a stellar industry Jury to take part in the Breakthrough Brits year-long mentoring and guidance programme.
Successful Breakthrough Brits receive non-voting membership of BAFTA for a year, giving them free access to BAFTA events and screenings and to our member’s space at 195 Piccadilly. In addition, BAFTA will support each Breakthrough Brit by working with them to tailor a programme of support, mentoring and career development in conjunction with industry professionals.
Breakthrough Brits accepts applications from individuals of all backgrounds whether their experience is via formal education and/or employment or whether they have achieved success via non-traditional routes.
Breakthrough Brits are selected from across the crafts in film, television and games. We actively encourage applicants in fields such as factual, documentary, entertainment, post-production and composition.
The initiative comprises an open call out for applications and industry nominations. All nominated candidates are required to submit an application.
Applications for 2015 open soon
This year’s BAFTA Breakthrough Brits are 18 supremely talented individuals with great futures ahead of them. They will have the chance to meet with and learn from some of the most renowned names in the film, television and games industries.
