As industry supporters representing their respective crafts, they will help BAFTA navigate India's diverse and creative talent pool as well as educate audiences about BAFTA's charitable remit; increasing global opportunities for people to pursue careers in the arts.

"It is an honour to be working with this ground-breaking initiative, and I look forward to worthwhile talent from the Indian film community receiving the right honing from an academy of this stature."  

“BAFTA Breakthrough is one of the unique worldwide art initiatives to work across films, television and games. It is truly exciting to be associated with a programme that seeks to bring together and support the raw Indian talent working in the games industry," said GOQii founder and CEO Vishal Gondal. "The programme offers a prolific experience to the ‘breakthroughs' that can enhance their career trajectory through a network and development approach. By introducing them to industry experts and offering them the opportunity to upskill themselves, the initiative gives them recognition in their respective industries, worldwide.”

“BAFTA Breakthrough India is a unique, ‘breakthrough’ opportunity for practitioners of the screen arts to be supported by the world-renowned organisation," said acclaimed actor Ratna Pathak Shah. "I am elated to be working with a programme that will help amplify our country’s brilliant new voices and emerging talent across genres in television, and offer them learning, networking and growth opportunities on a global level.”
