We're incredibly thrilled to announce that David Walliams OBE will be hosting the 2020 Into Film Awards, which will take place once again at London's ODEON Luxe Leicester Square on 18 March.

I love the Into Film Awards because it gives the opportunity to young people, from all kinds of backgrounds, to be a part of the film industry. Into Film is an amazing charity.

A hugely popular children's author alongside his television and entertainment work, David Walliams OBE (Britain's Got Talent, Little Britain) takes up the reins to host this year's ceremony after being inspired by the wealth of young talent he witnessed when he attended last year's Awards as a guest presenter.

Now in its seventh year, The Into Film Awards celebrates young people's creativity in film, showcasing and highlighting the wealth of tomorrow's creative talent. Young people from across the UK whose short films and reviews have been nominated will be recognised at a star-studded ceremony, which has previously been attended by some of the biggest stars in the industry including Daniel Craig, Eddie Redmayne, Lily James, Luke Evans, Gemma Arterton, Charles Dance, Ruth Wilson, Bill Nighy, Simon Pegg, Martin Freeman and Naomie Harris.

As an actor, these young people are the future, and you want them to give you a job one day! Anything that encourages creativity is important. We have an amazing film industry in this country which is often ignored by politicians and we need to support it.
