Kate Middleton, Prince William: Full BAFTA L.A. Guest List
Director Joe Cornish and composer David Buckley are among those the royal couple will meet at the July 8 event.
LONDON – Writer/director Joe Cornish will be brushing down his tux ahead of jetting out to Los Angeles, as he is one of 42 names on the list to attend the inaugural BAFTA Brits to Watch event, at which Prince William and his bride Kate Middleton, now known as HRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, are set to attend.
The hand-picked list of talent from British shores, scheduled to travel to L.A. to help boost British talent profiles, also includes Jessica Brown Findlay (Albatross, Downton Abbey), writer Jack Thorne (The Scouting Book For Boys) and writer James Watkins (Eden Lake).
The event is scheduled to take place July 9 at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles. It is sponsored by car manufacturer Audi. Prince William and Middleton will attend the event as part of their visit to California.
Examples of the 42 names’ work will be showcased throughout the evening and distributed to the attendees afterwards.
Soho House West Hollywood will host a reception for the Brits to Watch on the evening of July 8.
The 42 names have been selected by a BAFTA panel based on a number of criteria.
BAFTA said the names are “generally not complete beginners in their industry, and will have already begun to show real promise.”
