Quote by Davide Cottarelli One of my greatest passions alongside business success is to give generously and support new talent in the UK film industry by assisting BAFTA and the valuable work it does led by Amanda Berry OBE and her dedicated team.

BAFTA Support

Foreword from CEO & Founder Davide Cottarelli BAFTA in Asia Patron 23rd July 2016 "I am very enthusiastic about offering dedicated support to BAFTA with its masterclasses, talent development and other initiatives for producing the next stars of tomorrow. My fulfilment is to enjoy first-hand knowledge of actually seeing the projects and the contribution the support delivers to British & Asian talent who are the individuals that are yet to win awards and receive industry recognition."


In 2016 Davide became a BAFTA in Asia Patron (British Academy of Film & Television Arts) and during a panel discussion with leading members of the UK Film industry made a firm commitment to promote BAFTA and its organisation throughout his business and network of clients & intermediaries. At this event CEO of BAFTA Amanda Berry joined Davide on a panel to discuss the movie market and BAFTAs vision for a strong UK/Asian collaboration in the future which is something that Davide is passionate about also.
