The British Academy of Film and Television Arts – BAFTA – is a world-leading independent arts charity.
In addition to its Awards ceremonies, BAFTA has a year-round, international programme of learning events and initiatives that offers unique access to some of the world’s most inspiring talent through workshops, masterclasses, scholarships, lectures and mentoring schemes in the UK, USA and Asia.
BAFTA Crew is a professional development network for craft and technical talent with 2-4 main team credits across all key roles within production. Now in its fifth year, BAFTA Crew provides an exclusive online network for 500+ people, alongside opportunities to attend a programme of events designed to aid professional and creative development.
Breakthrough Brits showcases and supports the next generation of British creative talent in film, games and television. Each year, up to 20 talented newcomers are selected by a stellar industry Jury to take part in a year-long mentoring and guidance programme.
Successful Breakthrough Brits receive non-voting membership of BAFTA for a year, giving them free access to BAFTA events and screenings and to our member’s space at 195 Piccadilly. In addition, BAFTA will support each Breakthrough Brit by working with them to provide a tailored year of support, mentoring and career development.
