The John Brabourne Awards has supported up and coming talent since 2007 and we’re proud to have over 100 alumni. We offer financial assistance of up to £5,000 to people in the UK film and TV industry who have already proved what they can do – but now face obstacles to their success. This may be financial, health-related or due to a change in personal circumstances.
The legacy lives on
Named in honour of legendary producer John Brabourne, these awards help to make sure talent isn’t wasted. In a continuation of his legacy, John’s son Michael-John Knatchbull and granddaughter Kelly Knatchbull (agent at Sayle Screen) are members of the awards panel – along with Cameron Saunders, Vice President International Theatrical Distribution at Paramount Pictures (Chair); Nigel Wolland of the British Cinema & Television Veterans; and Mark Clark, Talent Development Manager.
