Screen International sponsors the Film Category. Screen editor Wendy Mitchell said: “Screen has long championed rising and established talents in the UK film world both in front of and behind the camera, so we’re thrilled to be involved with an initiative like the Hospital 100 that celebrates UK creativity in filmmaking. It feels like the UK film world is booming at the moment in many areas, so there are many people who should be celebrated for their hard work. The only problem is narrowing down the list to a select few out of so many great nominees.”
