BIFA nominations and jury announced

NOMINATIONS AND JURY ANNOUNCED FOR THE 12TH BRITISH INDEPENDENT FILM AWARDS

The nominations and jury members for the twelfth annual British Independent Film Awards (BIFAs) were announced today, Monday 26 October, at Soho House in London.

The nominations this year reflect the up and coming and internationally renowned on and off screen talent.

The film receiving the most nods is Fish Tank with eight nominations. Moon follows with seven nominations. An Education, In The Loop and Nowhere Boy each receive six nominations and Bright Star receives four. Other films with multiple nominations are Katalin Varga receiving three, and Bronson and Bunny & The Bull receiving two nominations each.

First time BIFA actor nominees include Abbie Cornish, Carey Mulligan, Katie Jarvis, Aaron Johnson, Andy Serkis, Peter Capaldi, Sam Rockwell, Tom Hardy, Anne-Marie Duff, Kerry Fox, Alfred Molina, John Henshaw, Christian McKay and Hilda Péter.

This year sees repeat nominations for actress Katie Jarvis, who is nominated in this year’s Best Actress and Most Promising Newcomer categories. Duncan Jones and Armando Iannucci both receive nominations in the Best Director and Douglas Hickox Award categories for Moon and In The Loop respectively. Andrea Arnold holds two nominations for Best Director and Best Screenplay for Fish Tank.

The BIFA Pre-Selection Committee of 70 members viewed more than 200 films, out of which they selected the nominations, decided by ballot.

Daniel Day Lewis, one of the most exceptionally talented and enigmatic actors in the industry, will be honoured with the Richard Harris Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Film by an Actor.

BIFA’s new 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.
