Screen, British Council to Present Stars of Tomorrow at LFF


Rosser, Michael, Screen International


Screen International has teamed with BFI London Film Festival and British Council to present the UK Stars of Tomorrow - one of several industry events unveiled today.

The first Screen International UK Stars of Tomorrow at LFF dinner is to be held on Oct 14 during the BFI London Film Festival (Oct 8-19).

The event will bring together a selection of this year's Stars of Tomorrow, including Aimee Ffion-Edwards and Phoebe Walller-Bridge, with casting directors, packaging agents, festival programmers, producers and financiers.

It will be preceded by a masterclass led by US casting agent Deborah Aquila, whose credits include The Shawshank Redemption and TV series Dexter and The Shield.

The event is supported by British Council and Casting Society of America (CSA), and will be held in association with We Are UK Film.

The dinner is by invitation only and is not an open event.LFF industry events

The 58th edition of the festival has restructured its industry events programme into four strands: In Conversation; Talking Points; Meet the Commissioners; and New Talent.

The In Conversation strand will be headlined by DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg as part of a celebration of the studio's 20th anniversary.

Katzenberg co-founded DreamWorks with Steven Spielberg and David Geffen in 1994, after spending more than a decade as chairman of Walt Disney Studios where he revived its fortunes with films such as The Little Mermaid, Aladdin and The Lion King.

Over the past two decades, DreamWorks Animation has produced blockbuster animation franchises including Shrek, Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda and How To Train Your Dragon.

The keynote is particularly timely following reports that Japanese telecoms and investment company SoftBank was eyeing a deal to buy DreamWorks Animation, valuing the studio at around $3.2bn.

Other conversations will include Stephen Frears, director of Philomena and The Queen; Bruna Papandrea, producer of Jean-Marc Vallee's Wild and executive producer of David Fincher's Gone Girl; and Peter Strickland, director of Berberian Sound Studio and LFF titles The Duke of Burgundy and Bjork Live: Biophilia, joined by his Biophilia co-director Nick Fenton.TALKING POINTS

The festival will bring filmmakers and industry delegates together for debates and meetings about cultural, creative and commercial priorities for filmmakers today.

A roundtable session hosted by Ed Vaizey, Minister of State at the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, and Ben Roberts, Director of the BFI Film Fund, with producers, distributors, sales agents and exhibitors will discuss the challenges and opportunities of broadening diversity in the UK film industry.

The art of making a family film will be discussed by directors working successfully in the genre. Clio Barnard (The Selfish Giant), Debbie Isitt (the Nativity trilogy), Jon Wright (Robot Overlords) and Peter Lord (co-founder, Aardman Animations) will be joined by the BFI Film Fund's Ben Roberts and the BFI's young audiences specialist Justin Johnson.

Susanna White, director of films such as Nanny McPhee And The Big Bang and the upcoming Our Kind Of Traitor, as well as the TV series Parade's End, Generation Kill and Boardwalk Empire will talk with James Kent (Testament Of Youth) and other LFF filmmakers to consider what a director needs to know to maintain a successful career in working across features, high-end TV, music promos and commercials in The big picture on small screens, presented with Directors UK. …
