Screen International editor Wendy Mitchell said: “We were thrilled with both the quantity and quality of the entries this year, which will enable the Screen Awards to grow again in its fourth edition. The shortlisted films and companies show such a breadth of creative work, from the smallest independent films to mammoth studio blockbusters.

“All of our shortlisted companies did impressive work to make sure their films connected with audiences, on whatever scale. The judges will have some tough decisions ahead of them. We look forward to celebrating with the entire film community on October 30.”
