We're delighted that Greta McMillan and Eden Quine-Taylor, both winners at the Into Film Awards in 2022, have been recognised as rising stars of the UK film industry, and honoured with a place on The National Lottery's new 'Walk of Stars'.

Created by The National Lottery, in partnership with the BFI, the ‘Walk of Stars' shines a light on both established and rising stars of the UK film industry who have been supported by National Lottery funding. The project was unveiled on London's South Bank by British director Gurinder Chadha (Bend it Like Beckham) and writer Charlotte Regan (Scrapper), and timed to coincide with the BFI London Film Festival.

At the 2022 Into Film Awards, Greta's film Change Direction (which you can watch below) won the 'Changes for a Better World' category, while Eden won our Ones to Watch category, having previously won Best Film: 12-15 in 2020.

Change Direction by Greta McMillan

Made when she was 17 years old through the use of an eyegaze communicator, Greta's film is a quietly impassioned call-to-action in the face of climate change apathy. It's a remarkable achievement that carries an important message for us all - not least of all those in positions of power, who have the ability to effect significant change in the fight to protect our planet. Watch this multi-award-winning film below.

I'm the One by Eden Quine-Taylor

I'm the One is a poetic and impressively staged one-shot film in which the residents of one small town demonstrate that everyone has their story and their own issues to deal with.

We also created a learning resource focused on Eden's film, covering key themes such as mental health, anti-bullying, prejudice and acceptance. Developed in partnership between Into Film Cymru, Kidscape and Eden herself, the resource offers opportunities to explore and respond to the film's themes and is tailored to support key learning objectives linked to the 'What Matters' statements in the Health and Well-Being Expressive Arts Areas of Learning and Experience.

Into Film and the Into Film+ streaming service is supported by the UK film industry through Cinema First and the BFI through National Lottery Funding, thanks to National Lottery players. Since the very first National Lottery draw in 1994, public support - raised directly through National Lottery ticket sales - has funded more than 670,000 projects, raising more than £46 billion for good causes.
