A young filmmaker from Crickhowell has won a coveted prize at a national film awards.
Eden Quine-Taylor has won the ‘One to Watch’ award at the Into Film Awards 2022.
Dubbed the ‘Young People’s Oscars’ the Into Film Awards were held at a star-studded ceremony in London recently, which was hosted by broadcaster and comedian Sue Perkins.
The awards mark more success for 18-year-old Eden, who previously won ‘Best Film’ in 2020.
Following the award, Eden will receive industry mentoring and an additional prize of £1000.
“It’s thrilling to have won the ‘Ones to Watch’ category at the Into Film Awards,” said Eden.
“I hope to see myself in the future with a film production company and creating feature films that all audiences can resonate with. I hope that in the future I’d be able to take on the role of director and director of photography on self-written scripts, screenplays, and adaptations from novels, as well as being heavily involved in the process of editing.
“Thank you Into Film for the opportunity and I can’t wait to get started with the mentoring.”
Minister for Education and Welsh Language, Jeremy Miles said: “I am thrilled that Eden has been recognised by these national awards.
“Supporting and developing the talent of our young learners is a key priority for us, and I hope this gives her much impetus to continue making films and growing her skills in this area.”
Non Stevens, Head of Into Film Cymru, said: “Congratulations to Eden as well. She’s already a fantastic filmmaker and is destined for even greater things. Again, she follows in the footsteps of another Welsh winner, Hedydd Ioan, who was there today in London as a former ‘Ones to Watch’ award winner.
Creative Wales and BAFTA Cymru need to remember the name Eden Quine-Taylor, because she’s here for the long haul.”
