BAFTA Breakthrough UK showcases and supports the next generation of creative talent working in British film, games and television, identifying excellent individuals who have had a breakthrough year in the industry.
Every year, a group of on and off-screen talented newcomers are selected by a stellar industry Jury to take part in the Breakthrough UK year-long programme. See the 2023 eligibility criteria here. https://www.bafta.org/supporting-talent/breakthrough/bafta-breakthrough-uk-2023-application-criteria
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, industry introductions and career development.
