Meet the 2020 USA 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.

In it's first year, a group of on and off-screen talented newcomers were selected by a stellar industry Jury to take part in the Breakthrough USA year-long mentoring and guidance programme. See the 2020 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.
