The Film and TV Charity’s only talent award, the John Brabourne Award, has supported up and coming talent since 2007. We’re proud to now have over 100 alumni. The award provides financial assistance of up to £5,000 to people in the UK film and TV industry who have already demonstrated talent, but face barriers to taking their next steps. You may be facing financial or health barriers or a change in personal circumstances.
The legacy lives on
Named in honour of legendary producer John Brabourne, the awards ensure that talent doesn’t go to waste. In a continuation of his legacy, John Brabourne’s son Michael-John Knatchbull and granddaughter Kelly Knatchbull (agent at Sayle Screen) are on of the awarding panel, alongside Cameron Saunders, Vice President International Theatrical Distribution at Paramount Pictures (Chair), Nigel Wolland of the British Cinema & Television Veterans, and Mark Clark, our Talent Development Manager.
