Culture Trip attended this year’s Into Film Awards and spoke to the stars on the red carpet to find out what advice they have for young filmmakers trying to make their way in the industry.

Into Film, a leading education organisation supported by the BFI with National Lottery funding, recently announced the winners of the Into Film Awards 2017 at ODEON Leicester Square.

Hosted by broadcaster Edith Bowman, the prestigious event saw film and television’s finest gather to celebrate this year’s most inspiring and upcoming young filmmakers, reviewers and those showing an exceptional commitment to film in schools.

Eddie Redmayne, Daniel Craig, Ruth Wilson, Amma Asante and Charles Dance are just some of the outstanding individuals from the world of film and television who attended and presented awards.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them star Eddie Redmayne said: ‘I’ve been an ambassador for Into Film for a few years now, and I’ve always loved what it is that Into Film does. Actually getting to come here to the awards, the enthusiasm, the hard work, the tenacity has been very inspiring. I feel like inspiring is a word that gets thrown around a lot, but some of the films I’ve seen up there and some of the people, both the students and the teachers, it’s sent me off with a skip in my step. So it’s been brilliant.’
