Shooting Stars

It’s one of the stand-out highlights for us each and every year – when, at the Berlin Film Festival, European Film Promotion host their annual European Shooting Stars event. The prestigious accolade is awarded to ten promising young actors from around the continent, and has quite a pedigree in the industry, with a remarkable list of previous winners. Daniel Craig, Andrew Scott, Andrew Garfield, Carey Mulligan, Andrea Riseborough, Alicia Vikander, Riz Ahmed and many more. Told you it was impressive.

So looking at the last of stars to have won this award, it’s now time to focus on this year’s winners, the future stars of tomorrow. It’s an event close to our hearts as we’re a media partner for it, and with that we are granted access to each and every one of the ten winners – and below you can watch all of those interviews. Friend of the site Ana Stanic asks the questions. Enjoy!
