British Independent Film Awards

The winners for the tenth annual British Independent Film Awards (BIFAs) were announced today, Wednesday 28 November at the Roundhouse in London.

Johanna von Fischer and Tessa Collinson, BIFA company co-directors and the event's producers say: “A decade ago, the need for an awards ceremony that celebrated British independent film talent was identified. We are now ten years on and BIFA has grown to celebrate the increasingly diverse range of talent out there. This year’s winners are no exception to this rule with Anton Corbijn winning the Douglas Hickox award and Judi Dench winning Best Actress.”

John Woodward, Chief Executive Officer of the UK Film Council, the major funding partner of the BIFAs says: "This year's nominations and award winners really highlight the outstanding talent working in the UK with beautiful and thought-provoking films made by both established and emerging filmmakers. The BIFAs are a great champion for the British film industry celebrating excellence and originality in independent filmmaking."

Elliot Grove, Founder of BIFA and creator of Raindance says:
“BIFA aims to recognise the plethora of new and established talent in the film industry of Britain. A special heart-felt thanks to the sponsors and filmmakers who have made this 10th edition such a success.”

BIFA are proud to announce th following winners for this year's awards:
