Elevate 2022-24 participants

Bafta has selected 20 producers from under-represented backgrounds to receive support and access to networking and career opportunities on its two-year Elevate scheme.

The selected producers include Ameenah Ayub Allen, a 2018 Screen Star of Tomorrow who produced Bafta winner Rocks.

The cohort was selected by a panel of industry experts led by Nahrein Kemp and including Annabel Jones, Cameron Roach, Fozia Khan, and Marcus Ryder.

The producers will be supported by a variety of industry consultants that include Dark Pictures producer and previous Screen star of tomorrow Yaw Basoah.

This is the fourth year Bafta has run the programme; for the first time it will run across 24 months, finishing in 2024. 

Previous recipients of the Elevate scheme include Limbo actor and 2021 Screen Star of Tomorrow Amir El-Masry.
