British Independent Film Award Nominations

user
  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).

This can be interpreted as either a brief celebratory calm before the storm, or just another indicator th...

  Despite the current successes of such UK exports as NEVER LET ME GO by Mark Romanek and NOWHERE MAN by Sam Taylor-Wood and the highly anticipated new entry in the mega-successful HARRY POTTER series opening next month, the British film industry is rather in the doldrums.

For those of us from New York, there was a shared concern about the loss of loved ones, the security of our friends and family and the frustrations of not being able to place p...
