Meet the 2021 UK Breakthroughs here.

Breakthrough UK is now closed for applications. If you have applied for Breakthrough UK 2022, you will hear back from us in October. 


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

Every year, a group of 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. See the 2022 eligibility criteria here.

Successful Breakthroughs receive 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 individually; we work with them to create a tailored year of support, mentoring and career development.
