As part of Battenberg's selection for the prestigious EIFF I have been named one of the festivals Trailblazers.
Established in 2007, Trailblazers is the EIFF’s flagship talent showcase - a key element in our promotion of new talent and our service to the UK industry, on which we are pleased to collaborate with Skillset.
The chosen filmmakers will be presented with every opportunity to forward their promising careers and diverse modes of working via the Festival’s structures and services. After the Festival, we stay in touch and track their progress – which is how we know about people like Eduard Grau, a 2007 Trailblazer who recently shot Tom Ford’s hit A Single Man after his cinematography showreel was picked up by one of the film’s producers in Edinburgh. Former Trailblazers with new feature films in the programme this year include Nichola Burley, star of SoulBoy; Bryan Larkin, actor in The Red Machine; and Lol Crawley, cinematographer on Donkeys.
