We have some very exciting news, our Director Matthew Lawes has been selected by BAFTA, to be part of their initiative; BAFTA Crew!
From BAFTA's website:
'Our professional network and masterclass programme connecting emerging talent to BAFTA-winners and nominees.'
BFI NETWORK X BAFTA Crew is an enhanced version of the popular professional development program. For the first time, it is connecting emerging 'below-the-line' talent with writers, directors, and producers, providing a rare opportunity for peer to peer networking and development across all key roles within production.
Now in its fourth year, BAFTA Crew provides exclusive live and online masterclasses, as well as networking sessions with BAFTA winners and nominees. This year 517 people will take part from across the UK, split roughly 50/50 between crew working in film and television with at least two years' of broadcast or feature credits and writers, directors and producers on the way to making their first feature films.
Participants, selected by leading practitioners in film and TV, include individuals who worked on BAFTA-nominated films such as Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, The Hard Stop and American Honey, on BAFTA-nominated television shows such as Game of Thrones, Black Mirror and The Murder Detectives, and on projects screened at film festivals such as Berlin, Sundance and Tribeca.
BFI NETWORK X BAFTA Crew is part of BFI NETWORK's UK-wide talent development scheme.
