BAFTA Breakthrough Brits showcases and supports the next generation of British creative talent in film, games, and television identifying excellent individuals who have had a breakthrough year in the industry.

Every year, up to 20 on and off-screen talented newcomers are selected by a stellar industry Jury to take part in the Breakthrough Brits year-long mentoring and guidance programme. This year producer Coco Jackson and actors Chance Perdomo and Abubakar Salim have been named amongst the 20.

Successful Breakthrough Brits receive non-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 Brit individually; working with them to create a tailored year of support, mentoring and career development.

Building on the success of Breakthrough Brits, BAFTA will be working with partners to facilitate the expansion of the ‘Breakthrough’ initiative globally. To find out if you are eligible, view the criteria here.
