Applications are now open for the BAFTA Los Angeles Newcomers Program

11 March 2020

Applications are now open for the 2020 intake of BAFTA LA's Newcomers Program. 

The Newcomers Program is a four-year new talent initiative, recognizing and supporting international rising stars who have recently moved to Los Angeles to further their development and career.

Since the program’s launch in 2007, this initiative has recognized the long and fruitful legacy of UK talents moving to the US to expand their knowledge, develop their skills, and expand their network of peers.

The program recently expanded to include international representation to further deliver BAFTA's mission to promote cultural exchange and strengthen global collaboration.

Those accepted on to the program will demonstrate:

A body of work that exhibits a demonstrable trajectory of growth and career advancement.
Alignment with the core values of BAFTA Los Angeles to strive for excellence in the art forms of the moving image, in an inclusive and collaborative spirit.
The passion and potential to become an international talent.
