Latest news about Breakthrough Brits 2014, BAFTA’s initiative to support and celebrate up-and-coming British talent.
This year a selection of on and off-screen talented newcomers have been selected by a stellar industry jury to take part in the Breakthrough Brits year-long mentoring and guidance programme. The jury met on Tuesday 16 September and included such talent as Richard Ayoade, Barbara Broccoli OBE, Mike Newell and Olivia Colman.
The Breakthrough Brits will be announced on 27 October at an evening reception at Burberry’s Regent Street flagship store, followed by a day of in-depth career guidance and mentoring from leading industry figures. However, this is just the beginning.
