Prince William, Kate Middleton attending L.A. BAFTA event


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The British Academy of Film & Television Arts’ planned “Brits to Watch” event just added two extremely watchable Brits to its RSVP list.

Prince William and Kate Middleton will attend the inaugural event, scheduled for July 9 at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles, THR reports. Prince William actually is president of BAFTA, and will be on hand at the black-tie affair to push the group’s agenda, which “aims to highlight the depth and range of British talent currently emerging in film, television and video games.”

“We are incredibly excited by the prospect of bringing some of the most talented emerging Brits in film, television and video games to the attention of arguably the most important people in the moving image industries today,” said BAFTA Chairman Tim Corrie. “We hope this will be only the first of a number of amazing opportunities for us to champion our very finest on-screen talent and behind-the-camera practitioners to the leading names in California.”

Nigel Lythgoe, chairman of BAFTA in Los Angeles, added, “This very special event is an excellent extension of BAFTA’s charitable work in Los Angeles, and around the world. Promoting the individual and collective achievements of our most promising emerging British talent is such an important part of our remit, whilst encouraging goodwill for the UK and opening further opportunities for UK-US collaboration. Being given the opportunity of meeting Hollywood’s elite will provide a highly significant and beneficial moment for them, especially at such a formative stage of their careers.”
