Browse Screen’s Rising Stars Scotland special issue, which celebrates Scottish talents who are finding their voice amid the nation’s production boom.
The issue profiles the inaugural Rising Stars Scotland line-up (announced online in august), featuring 11 up-and-coming film actors, directors, producers and writers (10 talents, one a producing duo).
It also features an in-depth look at how Scotland has become such a hotbed of new talent, and sees Screen Scotland executive director Isabel Davis expand on the national screen body’s talent development strategy.
Finally, two of the rising stars, actor Hiftu Quasem and producer Reece Cargan, take part in one-to-one discussions with producer Gillian Berrie and Studiocanal’s Dan MacRae, respectively.
Rising Stars Scotland is a collaboration between Screen International and Screen Scotland and was curated by Screen International’s chief critic and reviews editor Fionnuala Halligan.
