Supporting our Stars of Tomorrow

Screen International have introduced their 2018 Stars of Tomorrow, supported by ScreenSkills and as always, we have had a strong part to play in developing the careers of many of the selected filmmakers.

By supporting long-running programmes like iFeatures, Guiding Lights, Inside Pictures and London Calling and through providing bursaries to enable individuals to pursue learning opportunities, ScreenSkills has helped develop, educate and train the star writers, producers and directors of the future.

“Our work is about finding and nurturing the people who make this business what it is” says Gareth Ellis-Unwin. Head of Film, ScreenSkills

The 2018 Stars include Moin Hussain, Amrou El Khadi, Koby Adom and Harry Lighton, who all made short films through the London Calling scheme from Film London. Baff Akoto and Rose Glass were both mentees on Guiding Lights schemes, delivered by Lighthouse Arts. Prano Bailey-Bond was supported via Ffilm Cymru Wales’ Cinematic short film programme and Anna Griffin was able to attend Rotterdam Lab’s producer workshop with a bursary from ScreenSkills.

More recently some of this year’s Stars have found themselves playing their own part in ScreenSkills’ development of the future workforce by being able to place Trainee Finder trainees on their own films. Anna Griffin placed trainees on The Levelling and Calibre, Helen Simmons used the scheme on Ilkley, and Rose Glass will be taking the trainees, nurtured by ScreenSkills, on her forthcoming production Saint Maud.
