Rising Star Award to be handed out as part of Screen UK Marketing & Distribution Awards on Oct 30.

Screen International has confirmed the following three shortlisted nominees for the Rising Star category at the Screen UK Marketing & Distribution Awards.

The nominees are:

  • Andy Green, Account Director, Organic Publicity
  • Rebecca Johnson, Head of Marketing, Metrodome
  • Teresa Kowalski, Publicist, DDA PR

The Rising Star category recognises to recognise young talented executives in film marketing and distribution who will rise to the top of the community in the decades to come. The young achievers - who should have been working in the industry for no more than five years (age is irrelevant) - can work across marketing or PR, sales and distribution, acquisitions or administration.

The winner will be chosen by the Awards’ industry expert panel of judges.

Wendy Mitchell, Editor, Screen International, said: “Screen is a big supporter of new creative talent through our Stars of Tomorrow and it’s also important to us that these distribution, marketing and exhibition awards recognise the key role of new talents in the executive ranks.

“We had some great submissions this year and this shortlist of Andy, Rebecca and Teresa is a testament to how big an impact someone can make in their company and the wider industry in just a few short years. The judges will have a difficult decision to pick one winner.”

The Awards will be held Oct 30 at London’s Park Plaza Riverbank. For more information on the awards, including nominees for the other categories, please click here.
