Watch the video to find out about Film4.0s first talent intiative, which ran over summer 2012

The 2012 summer initiative from Film4.0

In August 2012 it was announced that the Scene Stealers jury had chosen a winner

Scene Stealers asked aspiring filmmakers to reimagine scenes from past Film4 productions in just two minutes or under, and after much deliberation, the jury picked The Brothers Lynch (Keith and David Lynch) to win first prize with their steal of a scene from Shane Meadows’ This is England, below:

Luke Aherne’s Trainspotting 2018 was named the best of the rest of the entries with a steal of Danny Boyle’s iconic film which you can see here.

The jury prize

The standard of entries were so high that the jury ended up creating a Special Jury Prize which went to Ross Johnston’s steal from Shane Meadows’ Dead Man’s Shoes, which you can see here:

The jury

The Scene Stealers Jury was made up of both filmmakers and industry execs including BAFTA-winning filmmaker Asif Kapadia, BAFTA-nominated filmmakers Lone Scherfig and Joe Cornish, film journalist and critic Charles Gant, Film4 Channel Editor David Cox and Film4.0 Commissioning Executive Anna Higgs. Scene Stealers was launched by Anna Higgs - one of her first initiatives under the Film4.0 banner, launched with the aim of discovering brilliant new untapped talent.
