First Light is an organisation that importantly encourages young filmmakers under the age of 25, and helps to develop their talents.
Their annual awards ceremony returned to London this week, when the winners of the 2013 First Light Awards were announced. The young filmmakers were given the opportunity to walk the red carpet in style at the Leicester Square Odeon, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Olivia Williams, Rafe Spall, Jason Maza, and Joely Richardson.
All of the above were on hand to present awards at the ceremony; a perfect example of how our current industry should be (and, clearly, are) helping to nurture the talents for the generations to come.
Because, let’s face it, if you’re presented with an award from Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg for Best Comedy, or the Best Drama from Chiwetel Ejiofor and Joely Richardson, then you know you’re doing something right. »
