EE Rising Star Award



The EE Rising Star Award is back for another year. Running since 2005, it is the only award presented at the EE BAFTA Film Awards which is voted for by you—the public. The award celebrates new and emerging talent within the film industry, with many former winners going on to become huge household names.
