Breakthrough Brits 2016

Breakthrough Brits is a BAFTA initiative, in partnership with Burberry to support twenty emerging creatives in film & TV or games through a year-long mentoring programme.

The initiative is aimed at those already working in a professional capacity and can demonstrate at least one credit for a piece of work in their field.

The free initiative not only gets you dedicated support in your career development but access to all of BAFTA's events and screenings throughout the year, giving you another avenue to make contacts and be inspired by other people's work. Think of it as a sort of BAFTA VIP pass...

With all that free stuff and support, you can be sure that your path to success will be accelerated as a Breakthrough Brit.

To apply you'll need to fill out their online application form along with your CV, showreel and supporting materials by Monday 30 May.



So you want to become a Breakthrough Brit?

Remember you have to 18 or over on 1 November with at least one credit on a piece of work to be eligible to apply.

I want to be a Breakthrough Brit!
