Latest news about Breakthrough Brits 2014, BAFTA’s initiative to support and celebrate up-and-coming British talent.
Breakthrough Brits is back! If you’re a new professional in the film, television or games industries and beginning to make a name for yourself in your chosen field, then we want to hear from you.
Launched last year in partnership with Burberry, Breakthrough Brits showcases and supports the next generation of British creative talent in film, TV and games.
This year, up to 20 on-screen and off-screen talented newcomers will be selected by a stellar industry Jury to take part in the Breakthrough Brits year-long mentoring and guidance programme.
The Breakthrough Brits will be announced 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.
Successful Breakthrough Brits will 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.
