Film in London is having a moment. There’s renewed enthusiasm for British cinema among filmmakers, critics and audiences, as recent films like ‘Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy’, ‘The King’s Speech’, ‘Shame’ and ‘We Need to Talk About Kevin’ have excited local film-goers in a way they haven’t for a very long time. A new generation of filmmakers like Andrea Arnold and Ben Wheatley are rising up to sit alongside titans like Mike Leigh and Ken Loach. The new Bond movie, ‘Skyfall’, was a recent reminder of the long heritage of movie-making in this country, while international productions like ‘Frankenweenie’ continue to make our city their home.

Blanche McIntyre


Ben Power

Theatre is on world-beating form, despite absorbing sizeable funding cuts to its creative engine, the public sector. But London’s mixed economy – a strong commercial sector like New York, and a strong state sector, like the European theatre capitals – still makes it exceptional. Leading this year’s charge is Nicholas Hytner, whose National Theatre has developed big, ambitious shows like ‘War Horse’ and ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’ (starring James Corden) and transferred them to Broadway and the West End. Michael Grandage, who follows his reign at the Donmar with a £10 theatre season on the West End, is now making starry theatre for everyone. Immersive spectacular fun is represented on the list

A Producer and Casting Director whose productions of West End revivals, this year including MACK & MABLE, have allowed audiences and critics to re-assess. Her numerous productions include PARADE, SPRING AWAKENING and SMOKEY JOE’S CAFE.

But it hasn’t stood still, either: the BBC and Channel 4’s mould-breaking multiplatform coverage of the Olympics and Paralympics underscored television’s capability to react to, embrace and even drive change. Much remains uncertain
