The DAFTAS - a home of lasting partnerships

“Regardless of who wins today, the important thing to remember is that the journey is the reward. The fact that you all met, got to work with each other, and will continue working on your exciting upcoming projects, is the main take-away from this competition.”

Tamara Orlova Alvarez, founder of the DAFTAS

Whether you are a grassroots organisation seeking new partnerships, a business wanting to get in front of a larger audience, or an enthusiastic project manager with experience in filmmaking and events, we want to hear your ideas and suggestions.

By investing your time and resources in DAFTAS, you are also investing in our values – Aspiration, Creativity, Integrity, Collaboration.



By collaborating with us, you can create a difference in the lives of entrepreneurial filmmakers searching for their big break. The DAFTAS provide a platform for creative filmmakers who are not afraid of a challenge to meet and work along with experienced and award-winning actors, film directors, producers – you name it.

Every year, the DAFTAS aspire to be better, larger and touch more lives. That’s why we are carrying debriefing interviews with team leaders, judges, sponsors – to learn and improve continuously.

We invite you to join us!


Even the BBC Comedy Controllers admit that the British comedy scene might suffer from a ‘brain drain’, with megacorps like Netflix and Disney luring talented writers and comedians across the pond with big budgets.

At DAFTAS, we aim to support filmmakers from all genre to get creative, think outside of the box, and search for ground-breaking solutions – something every filmmaker will be able to relate to.

We reward creativity and provide support and mentoring to DAFTAS team leaders.


We understand that every filmmaker and actor has chosen their – often laborious and thankless – profession out of a passion for the craft.

We treat all stakeholders with integrity and expect it back from filmmakers, partners, and sponsors.


The DAFTAS was created with collaboration in mind. No film can be created on such short notice without team members being able to create a collaborative environment. Our teams have gone on to work on future projects together and continuing with the spirit of collaboration.

We want to hear from you if you are too keen on creating collaborations that will stand the test of time!
