Meet the 2023 US Breakthroughs here.


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

Each year, a group of on and off-screen talented newcomers will be selected by a stellar industry Jury to take part in the Breakthrough US year-long mentoring and guidance program. See our eligibility criteria here.

Successful Breakthroughs receive voting membership of BAFTA for a year, giving them free access to BAFTA events and screenings. In addition, BAFTA supports each Breakthrough individually; we work with them to create a tailored year of support, industry introductions and career development.
