The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), in partnership with Yu Holdings, has launched a new initiative that will celebrate and support China’s future stars of film, games and television and bring them to international attention. A jury of Chinese and British industry experts will select five ‘Breakthrough’ talents from across China to take part in the year-long mentoring and guidance programme.
Their names will be announced at an exclusive event at The Peninsula Shanghai in October!
The winners will then be flown to the UK to be introduced to British creatives and share their knowledge and experiences with their British peers. The worldwide star Tom Hiddleston was present as the BAFTA Breakthrough China ambassador. His little speech created sensation.
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), is an academy that organizes annual awards ceremonies in the fields of film, television and video games in the United Kingdom, called BAFTA Awards. BAFTA’s statutes claim to “support, develop and promote the art of the animated image, through the identification and reward of excellence, which inspires professionals for the benefit of the public”. The Academy is composed of approximately 6,000 professionals from the film, television and video game industries. BAFTA’s headquarters are located in Piccadilly, London.
The Academy trophies are in the form of a theatre mask. They were created in 1955 for the Guild of Television Producers by the American sculptor Mitzi Cunliffe.
