The Hospital, a London members’ club, has announced this year’s The Hospital Club 100, which recognises influential people in the creative industries.
In the emerging film category, the list includes actress Emily Blunt, 7 Inch Cinema founders Pip McKnight & Ian Francis, actress Carey Mulligan, Archer’s Mark founders Mike Brett & Steve Jamison, and Future Shorts founder Fabien Riggall.
In the established film category, honorees are actor Colin Firth, director Mike Leigh, director Danny Boyle, Optimum Releasing’s Will Clarke and Danny Perkins, and actress Tilda Swinton.
Leading industry figures had compiled the shortlist and votes were accepted on thehospitalclub.com. The other categories in addition to film include music; TV; new media/digital; publishing & writing; theatre & performing arts; advertising, marketing & PR; fashion; art & photography and design.
Will Turner, CEO of the Hospital Club, said: “This year’s list demonstrates the incredible talent surplus Britain has in the creative industries vs. many competing markets. It’s also great to see the swing to a greater number of women on this year’s list, of both established but especially of emerging talent. With seismic changes in technology affecting business models across the board, we expect to see people on our emerging lists exerting more influence, more rapidly than ever before.
“The creative industries are now viewed as an important area for growth for this country, something that we can export more effectively in a world where we are currently both geographically and linguistically advantaged.”
