Breakthrough identifies the most exciting new talent coming up in the film, games and television industries and gives them access to unique career development and mentoring opportunities. BAFTA gives talented individuals bespoke support at their critical ‘breakthrough’ career moment, enabling them to build on their success and ensuring their continued development in their chosen field.

In light of the numerous challenges posed by the Covid-19 crisis and its impact on new talent in the screen industries, BAFTA support offered to Breakthrough China 2019 winners was extended into 2021. 

BAFTA Breakthrough UK and USA are now open for applications. BAFTA Breakthrough India will reopen for applications later in 2021. For updates on the relaunch of Breakthrough China, register your interest
