Date posted: 06.10.2017

We are delighted to congratulate six of our filmmaking alumni, who have been selected for the 13th Screen International Stars of Tomorrow.

The annual selection of rising stars has a track record in spotting both on and off-screen talent. Previous filmmakers in the ‘must-watch’ list have included Andrea Arnold, Abi Morgan, Mia Bays, Andrew Haig, Richard Ayoade and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

The Film London alumni announced as Stars of Tomorrow this year are:

  • Anwar Boulifa, director. Boulifa went through London Calling in 2015 with his short film Templates, and is currently developing the screenplay for his debut feature project, The Unwanted.
  • Loran Dunn, producer. Dunn produced the short Marina and Adrienne through our Shakespeare’s Sister scheme in 2016 and is currently developing several feature projects.
  • Sarmad Masud, director. Masud went through London Calling Plus in 2014 with the award-winning Two Dosas. His first feature, My Pure Land, has been selected as the UK’s submission to the Academy Awards foreign language category.
  • Rubika Shah, director. Shah went through London Calling last year with White Riot: London. The short appeared at festivals around the world, and Shah is now working on a feature version of the documentary.
  • Leanne Welham, director. Welham produced Transgress through our short film scheme in 2009, and is currently working on London Blitz feature The Warning.
  • Harry Michell, director. Michell took his comedy feature, Chubby Funny, through our Build Your Audience scheme, and is currently working on his second feature.

Film London alumni appearing in last year’s selection were Yaw Basoah, producer on Microwave film Zero (currently in production), and Toby Fell-Holden, director of award-winning London Calling short Balcony.
