BIFA AWARDS 2009

BIFA’s jury is comprised of professionals and talent from across the British film industry including: Actress Jodie Whittaker, Actors Idris Elba, Liam Cunningham, Eddie Marsan and Peter Mullan, Directors Sarah Gavron and Eran Creevy, Producers Dixie Linder, Anita Overland and Adrian Sturges, Documentary Filmmaker Kate Blewett, Film Marketing Consultant Robert Mitchell, Projectionist Paul Speed and Head of Distribution and Exhibition at The UK Film Council Peter Buckingham.

Johanna von Fischer and Tessa Collinson, BIFA co-directors say: "No single film dominates the Awards this year, reminding us of the high quality and variety of talent on offer in the UK. And if we can be celebrating so much good work in a year that is said to be difficult, there is a lot to shout about."

Elliot Grove, founder of Raindance and the British Independent Film Awards says: "The nominees and winners this year prove again the wealth of fresh and diverse filmmaking talent that distinguishes British independent filmmaking."

John Woodward, Chief Executive Officer of the UK Film Council says: "These awards have underlined both the current strength of British filmmaking talent and the crucial importance of public investment in creative excellence.

"Great British success stories such as Fish Tank, Moon, In the Loop and Nowhere Boy have been entertaining critics and audiences throughout 2009 - and for films produced and developed by the UK Film Council to have scooped six top awards, in addition to the three awards for films we supported in distribution, is not only really well deserved but also a good sign for further recognition of British filmmaking as we enter the awards season in 2010."

"Over their 12 years, the BIFAs have championed British independent film excellence and originality, and the UK Film Council remains a proud partner."

The 12th awards ceremony has taken place on Sunday 6 December at The Brewery, Chiswell Street, in London and was hosted by James Nesbitt.

BIFA are proud to announce the following nominees for this year’s awards.
