Oscar winner Barry Jenkins is another young talent on this list. At 38, Jenkins already has garnered international fame as the director of last year's Best Picture winner Moonlight. As a screenwriter and director, Jenkins has proved himself to be one of the foremost talents working on movies today, crafting beautiful imagery and stories out of the character first.

Look out for him later this year, when his film If Beale Street Could Talk, a film about a woman in Harlem trying to carry her child and the burden of her fiance wrongly accused, hits theaters.
