Screen International has picked out four NFTS graduates in its yearly list of hottest new talent - Stars of Tomorrow.

Jamie Stone's 2012 NFTS graduation film Skyborn was shortlisted for a Student Oscar, and equally has seen enough interest in it that he is now progressing with expanding it to a full-length feature. Stuart Earl on the 2009 Edinburgh Trailblazer Award and has had films he composed for shown at Cannes and Edinburgh Festivals, and seen those films win awards in the UK and abroad. Annemarie Lean-Vercoe graduated in 2003 and has gone on to work on a number of documentaries, dramas, comedies, music videos and commercials, including the promos for Coldplay's latest album Mylo Xyloto.
