    Daniel Craig and Sienna Miller are among the stars who will present young film-makers with the First Light Movies Awards.

    The ceremony, which honours younger members of the profession – many from disadvantaged or minority backgrounds, will be hosted by T4 presenters Miquita Oliver and Rick Edwards and will boast several celebrity attendees.

    Also set to present awards are Spooks star Rupert Penry-Jones, Infamous actor Toby Jones and Skins bad girl Kaya Scodelario.

    Each of the eight categories including Best Drama, Best Horror, Best Thriller and Best Screenplay have been judged by celebrities such as Skins star Nicholas Hoult, Kate Beckinsale, Orlando Bloom and James Franco.

    Host Miquita said: “Presenting this year’s Activision First Light Movies Awards with Rick should be a lot of fun, the nominated films are all fantastic and the awards will be a great day for everyone.”

    Fellow presenter Rick is far more practical: “These young people are the same people who are going to be making the films that we’re all gonna be queuing up for at the local multiplex in 10 years time. So of course I’m wholeheartedly behind the whole thing. I’m thinking long term – if I play my cards right I might get some free tickets.”
