BAFTA Breakthrough UK is now open for 2023 applications

BAFTA Breakthrough UK is now open for this year’s applications. 

The Breakthrough UK initiative puts the BAFTA spotlight on rising stars that work in film, games and television in Britain, celebrating people that have had an exceptional year in the creative industries that entertain us all. 

Each year a group of talented individuals that work both on and off-screen is selected, and will take part in a year-long programme of support, industry networking and career growth. 

Those that are nominated must be over 18 at the time of nomination, must be actively working in the UK, and have been a resident of the UK for at least two years. Those that are successfully chosen for BAFTA Breakthrough ‘23 will also receive a free voting membership to the British Academy of Film and Television Arts for a year, which will also allow them to attend exclusive events and screenings at the BAFTA HQ in 195 Piccadilly. 

The deadline for BAFTA Breakthrough UK applications this year is June 22, 2023 at 12PM.
