We are extremely pleased to announce that acclaimed Scottish actress Katie Leung - well known for her role as Cho Chang in the Harry Potter series - has become our new Into Film Ambassador in Scotland.

Leung recently lent her support to the 2018 Into Film Awards ceremony, where she was on hand to present the award for Film Club of the Year (12 and Under), alongside actor Fionn O'Shea (Handsome Devils). We are greatly excited to continue our collaboration, and discover what more she can bring to Into Film and how together we can continue to inspire young people in Scotland.

I am very honored to be an Into Film Ambassador, and hope to inspire youngsters in Scotland, as well as to encourage fairer representation and gender equality within the film industry.
