Film industry magazine Screen Daily has announced its Stars of Tomorrow list for 2019.
The infamous list reveals which UK & Ireland talent they believe are going to make an impact on the film industry at large. Featuring actors, writers, directors, and heads of department, editor Fionnuala Halligan makes the tough decision after consulting with experts across industry.
The Stars of Tomorrow will be hosted at an event at the Hotel Cafe Royal the 11th July and is supported by organisations including ScreenSkills, the Casting Society of America, Filmarket Hub and BFI London Film Festival along with venue partners Hotel Café Royal and the BFI Riverfront.
Halligan said: “Every year it seems impossible that I’ll encounter as much raw talent as the last but each time I look I find even more fresh faces with so much to say. Reading about the class of 2019, it’s easy to get excited about the diverse array of talent about to grace our screens. I feel certain that the British and Irish film industries will be lively and inclusive in their hands. If these are the Stars of Tomorrow, then the future is looking good.”
The Stars of Tomorrow has been running for 16 years and, as always with the call for more diversity on and behind the screen, each year more Black talent is getting recognised. This year’s Stars of Tomorrow Black stars include:
- Actors – Sam Adewunmi | Chance Perdomo
- Casting – Isabella Odoffin
- Director – Dionne Edwards | Nadia Latif
- Editor – Mdhamiri Á Nkemi
- Producer – Fiona Lamptey
- Writer – Rapman
