Congratulations to Eva Riley: Screen Star of Tomorrow

Awards Film

Riley was then accepted into the National Film and Television School to study directing. Her graduate film Patriot, about an 11-year-old living in a rural English town against a backdrop of racial tension, was nominated for a short film Palme d’Or in 2015.

Her next short Diagnosis – starring Charlotte Spencer and produced by BAFTA winner Emilie Jouffroy – was funded by BBC Films through its Greenlight Project and is currently in post-production with a view to festival submissions in the autumn.

Riley is also working on feature project Perfect Ten, which is in early development with iFeatures and is developing another feature, The Circle, to which 45 Years production outfit The Bureau is attached.
