Gareth Edwards

​British film director Gareth Edwards is best known for directing the 2010 indie motion picture Monsters and the first Star Wars story, Rogue One.

Determined to pursue his dreams, he entered SCI-FI-London the Film Challenge 48 where he had to make a movie with 1 actor, two days, and the smallest number of elements. He won the contest and the opportunity to direct his first feature film, Monsters.
