Haolu Wang, from Xuzhou in Jiangsu Province, received funding towards tuition fees for the MA in Directing Fiction at the National Film and Television School (NFTS).
Haolu previously attended Colby College (Maine USA), graduating with double majors in Government (Honours) and Economics (Distinction) in 2010. Haolu, who is about to enter her second year at the NFTS, previously worked as an onset script editor on a Chinese/UK co-production feature and as a screenwriter for a Beijing-based production company. She has written and directed several short films, which have screened at numerous film festivals around the world.
It’s an absolute honour and privilege to be awarded a BAFTA scholarship. The mentorship and talent support provided to the BAFTA scholars will be very valuable for my future career.
Haolu is being mentored by writer-director Alex Garland.
