Rising Stars Scotland

Screen International, in association with Screen Scotland, has revealed the line-up for the first-ever Rising Stars Scotland, a major new talent spotlight for Scottish filmmakers and actors.

The programme aims to identify and promote the next generation of Scottish film talent to the international industry. Rising Stars Scotland is a joint initiative from Screen Scotland and Screen International, and is an offshoot of Screen’s UK & Ireland Stars of Tomorrow programme.

The line-up features 11 up-and-coming film actors, directors, producers and writers (10 talents, one a producing duo) who are on the cusp of their first major professional breakthrough. All those selected are either originally from or currently living in Scotland.
