Breakthrough Brits in partnership with Burberry showcases and supports the next generation of British creative talent in film, television and games. Each year, up to 20 talented newcomers are selected by a stellar industry Jury to take part in a 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 create a tailored year of support, mentoring and career development.
