British Independent Film Award Nominations

 

With the British film industry still reeling from proposed massive budget cuts from governmental agencies, there is definitely an atmosphere of uncertainty in the air (which I experienced last week while attending the BFI London Film Festival). However, as far as the British films that will be hitting screens in the coming weeks, it actually appears to be a rather prolific period. This can be interpreted as either a brief celebratory calm before the storm, or just another indicator that the British film industry indeed has a pulse, despite the doom and gloom that has pervaded the media coverage about it. Once again, British films are alive and well, despite news to the contrary.

This was indeed evidenced this week by the announcements of the nominations for the Moet British Independent Film Awards, which will celebrate its 13th annual lovefest next month. To no one's surprise, THE KING'S SPEECH by Tom Hooper led the nominations with eight nods, including Best Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay and acting nominations for Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush and Guy Pearce.  This will undoubtedly be the case for the film with end-of-the-year critics prizes and the upcoming Golden Globe and Oscar nominations later this year.

Aside from THE KING'S SPEECH, other Best Film nominees include KICK-ASS (Matthew Vaughn), MONSTERS (Gareth Edwards) and NEVER LET ME GO (Mark Romanek), each of which took multiple nominations themselves. Other films receiving nominati8ons included such high profile titles as BRIGHTON ROCK (Rowan Joffe), MADE IN DAGENHAM (Nigel Cole) and ANOTHER YEAR (Mike Leigh).

 

 

A prominent nominee in the Best Documentary category is THE ARBOR, the directorial debut of visual artist Clio Barnard, The film, which profiles the life and career of playwright Andrea Dunbar and her troubled relationship with her family, won two awards at the recently concluded BFI London Film Festival. Barnard spent two years interviewing Dunbar’s family and friends, and these personal accounts formed the backbone to the film, which is a canny mix of documentary and fiction. THE ARBOR received six nominations, including Best Documentary, Best Debut Director and Best Actress for Manjinder Virk.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony which will take place on Sunday, December 5th at the Old Billingsgate in London and will be hosted for the sixth year by James Nesbitt. The full list of nominations is below.
