Meet the 2020 UK Breakthroughs here.
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 2020 eligibility criteria here.

In addition, BAFTA supports each Breakthrough individually; we work with them to create a tailored year of support, mentoring and career development.
