Applications are now open for the landmark 20th edition of Screen International’s Screen Stars of Tomorrow, our annual portfolio of new talent from the UK and Ireland. 

The submissions window is open for one month, from March 1 to March 31, 2023. 

Applications are open to UK and Irish nationals and long-term residents of either country. There is no upper or lower age limit.

Applicants should use the this Google Form and need to attach a brief bio, a headshot and contact details as well as a small statement about why they are applying. This form is mandatory.

The field is open to producers, directors, writers, actors and heads of department. 

Producers, writers and heads of department should ideally have one feature film to their credit. Directors, conversely, should be on the point of making their first feature, while actors must be working in cinema as well as TV.

Screen International’s reviews editor and chief critic Fionnuala Halligan will take charge of the selection process for the 13th consecutive year in 2023. She can be contacted at screenstarsoftomorrow@gmail.com.

Screen will announce the winners in early July and celebrate with a reception in Central London shortly afterwards.

Although confined to the UK and Ireland, Screen’s Stars of Tomorrow talent initiative has proved itself to be the global film industry’s most successful new talent showcase with an unrivalled track record for discovering actors and key creatives, many of whom have gone on to win Academy Awards and Baftas and become household names.
