BAFTA resumes search for Breakthrough Brits’ in Film, Television and Games

11 Apr BAFTA resumes search for Breakthrough Brits’ in Film, Television and Games

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts is calling for emerging British talent to put their names forward for BAFTA Breakthrough Brits in partnership with Burberry, an annual new talent initiative that identifies showcases and supports the next generation of British creative talent in film, TV and games.

Amanda Berry OBE, Chief Executive of BAFTA, said: “The success of Breakthrough Brits is a real source of pride for everyone at BAFTA, and we’re delighted to be partnering with Burberry for a fifth year on such an important new talent initiative. Year on year, the calibre of talent we identify through the initiative exceeds expectations, and we were particularly thrilled that a number of our Breakthrough Brits were among the winners and nominees at our most recent EE British Academy Film Awards, and look forward to seeing this success replicated across our other Award ceremonies.”

A jury of experts from film, television and games will select up to 20 on-screen and off-screen talented newcomers to take part in a year-long mentoring and guidance programme. The chosen 2017 Breakthrough Brits will each receive a bespoke programme of career development support, including one-to-one mentoring, guidance sessions and networking opportunities, as well as free access to BAFTA events for 12 months. The selected honourees will be revealed at a reception at the global Burberry flagship, 121 Regent Street, later this year.
