Rising Stars

Screen International, in association with Screen Scotland, collaborated to create this new talent spotlight for Scottish filmmakers. The collaboration is Rising Stars Scotland.

Screen International, with almost two decades of finding the world’s top creative film talent in the UK & Ireland Stars of Tomorrow, has selected ten up-and-coming film actors, directors, producers and writers who are on the cusp of their first major professional breakthrough.

The programme

Each Rising Star will be matched with an industry mentor who can help move them on their next career stage. Reece will be matched with his mentor very soon.

Screen Scotland will work with the participants to offer a bespoke package of professional development over 12 months. Support offered will focus on connecting talent to key decision-makers and influencers to elevate their international profile and progress career objectives.

The selection was made by Screen’s chief film critic and reviews editor Fionnuala Halligan, who has overseen the trade publication’s UK talent selection for the last 12 years.

Reece Cargan

I am honoured to be part of this impressive lineup and can't wait to get started on the programme with my cohort and with my mentor.
I am excited to see where this goes and thrilled to be able to gain more momentum with my current slate of projects.

Screen Scotland Executive Director Isabel Davis:

“We want to share our excitement about the next generation of exceptional Scottish talent coming through short film work and features in development and we know they deserve greater exposure.”
