Last night , Burberry and So It Goes celebrated emerging British talent in film ahead of the 69th British Academy Film Awards.

During the event, So It Goes Editor and Creative Director James Wright chaired a discussion about British film with a panel consisting of BAFTA CEO Amanda Berry OBE, producer Paul Webster (Atonement, Pride and Prejudice) and Stewart Till CBE (Polygram, UIP, UK Film Council).

The event at Thomas’s at 121 Regent Street, was attended by a variety of guests from the film and arts, including actors Henry Lloyd-Hughes, Jenna Coleman, Tom Hughes, Perdita Weeks, Olivia Grant, Sophie Kennedy-Clark; BAFTA Breakthrough Brits actors Letitia Wright, Aysha Kala and Alex Lawther; Mr Burberry campaign stars Josh Whitehouse and Amber Anderson and Burberry Acoustic musician Tom Odell.

Tomorrow, as part of Burberry and So It Goes’ partnership, we will be releasing the first in a six-part series of interviews on the British film industry, drawing insights from top British directors, actors, screenwriters and producers.

Editor Joshua Bullock will be talking with panellist Stewart Till about his 30 years of experience in the industry that include attempting to launch a major studio based outside the US. Once dubbed 'Hollywood’s man in Britain' Till has run many film bodies, production companies and distributors including Polygram International, which under him acquired and distributed iconic films like Four Weddings and A Funeral and Trainspotting.
