BAFTA Elevate is designed to support those from underrepresented groups progressing in their careers, and to help tackle the issue of diversity in our industries as a whole. 

Those selected to participate receive a bespoke 12-month programme of support including networking opportunities, introductions, mentoring, tailored panel discussions, masterclasses and workshops focused on professional development.

Our 2018 programme supports a group of writers who are progressing their careers in film or television and who represent a range of abilities, genders, races, sexual orientations or socioeconomic backgrounds. Read the press release here.

The inaugural programme - for female directors seeking to progress in high end television and features - continues to support 15 talented women. Read our press release that announced the launch of the initiative here.
