At a party held in Covent Garden’s h Club, London, those named on the list mingled with the judging panel in an evening that championed 30 of the capital’s most promising directors, writers, producers, performers and behind-the-scenes crew, and games professionals. The 30 are whittled down from a starting list of more than 1,000.

Delivering a speech to those in attendance, Chief Executive of Film London and the British Film Commission Adrian Wootton OBE said:

“London continues to lead the way as a world class hub for talent in the screen industries, and the 30 Lodestars of 2020 will no doubt play an important part in guiding future works within the industry.

“This list really showcases the breadth of skill in our industry and I’m delighted to see that it also reflects the diverse communities of London and Film London’s commitments to inclusion in the industry.
