16th Moet British Independent Film Awards

Frankly we would be really happy to share this independent event if Raindance Elliott Grove was not part of the Organization: He owes us money for two years, and laughs about it, offering promo on his site against the service we delivered.

Winners_2013

Monday 9 December 2013; Last night, at Old Billingsgate Market, the stars of the British film industry braved the cold and arrived in hoards for the 16th Moët British Independent Film Awards. This glamorous event, hosted by The Hobbit actor James Nesbitt, brought together the crème de la crème of British cinema to celebrate the wealth of independent British film this year.

 

Attendees of the star-studded event included internationally renowned director Paul Greengrass, who received the Variety Award, and magnificent actress Julie Walters CBE who won the prestigious Richard Harris Award, introduced to recognise outstanding contribution in the British film industry.

 

Other guests included Saoirse Ronan, Ken Loach, Steve Coogan, Douglas Booth, Eddie Marsan, Hayley Atwell, Jim Broadbent, Lindsay Duncan, Mark Strong, Harvey Weinstein, Imogen Poots, James McAvoy, Felicity Jones, Stanley Tucci, Joanne Froggatt, MyAnna Buring, Tom Hardy, Natascha McElhone, Sting and Trudie Styler.

 

James McAvoy, recipient of the Best Actor award for his role in Filth, commented in his acceptance speech, “I was thinking about the word ‘independent’, and it really means ‘on your own’ and it’s tough going. But tonight we’re not on our own.”

 

Moët Champagne was flowing all night, and each winner received the stunning new iconic BIFA Trophy designed by Fredrikson Stallard and created by Swarovski, a longstanding partner of the MBIFAs for the past three years. 

Prior to the awards, guests dined on a delicious menu and enjoyed magnums of Moët & Chandon.
