Student filmmakers are the future of the film industry and we believe it is critical to use our access to connect these talented students with industry professionals and foster a community of education.

All student who are selected to be on the Student Awards Shortlist are invited to attend educational programming and events online. These events are designed to help students network, learn from filmmaking veterans, and familiarize them with the global entertainment industry.

Industry Tours

Finalists in the Yugo BAFTA Student Awards are usually flown into Los Angeles, where we treat them to an immersive tour of the city. This includes visits to studios, production companies, agencies, and of course, a selection of popular tourist spots. Leveraging our extensive industry connections through our membership, we offer these filmmakers - many of whom are experiencing Los Angeles for the first time - a comprehensive overview of Hollywood's workings. This provides valuable opportunities for networking and the exchange of expertise, facilitated through seminars, parties, exclusive screenings, and meetings with BAFTA members.

These sessions are  designed to offer a deep dive into specific topics, enriching their understanding and skills in the craft.
