Each year the European Film Promotion highlight the work of ten of the most promising rising talents from around the continent. Their ‘Shooting Stars’ for 2019 have been revealed and we’re very pleased to premiere the trailer for the ten actors, showcasing some of their recent work. Their achievement will be honoured at the Berlin Film Festival next month, where we will sit down each of them to talk about their career so far, and their plans for the future.
Last year we spoke to the 2018 Shooting Stars, some of whom have come to the fore in the last twelve months. If you’ve seen Rain on Netflix then you’ll know the name Alba August, whom we spoke to before the series had hit our screens. Michaela Coel has become a regular on the red carpet across the world, with her Netflix film Been So Long and many more.
It’s always a joy to watch new talent rise, and this initiative is one we’re very grateful to be able to support. You can find more information about each of the actors right here.
Without further ado here are the ten actors, and the exclusive trailer which showcases exactly why we should be keeping an eye on them.
