BAFTA Breakthrough UK


Applications for BAFTA Breakthrough UK 2020 will open soon.

Meet the 2019 Breakthrough Brits here.

BAFTA Breakthrough UK, formerly known as BAFTA Breakthrough Brits, showcases and supports the next generation of British creative talent in film, games and television, identifying excellent individuals who have had a breakthrough year in the industry.

Every year, up to 20 on and off-screen talented newcomers are selected by a stellar industry Jury to take part in the Breakthrough UK year-long mentoring and guidance programme. To find out if you are eligible, view our criteria here.

Breakthrough UK honourees receive non-voting membership of BAFTA for a year, giving them free access to BAFTA events and screenings and to the members' space at 195 Piccadilly. In addition, BAFTA supports each Breakthrough UK honouree individually; we work with them to create a tailored year of support, mentoring and career development.
