BIFA 2017 NOMINEES REVEALED!

November 2017 | BIFA

See the full list of nominees for this year's British Independent Film Awards.

Among the Best International Independent Film nominees are Jordan Peele’s Get Out and Cannes winners The Square and Loveless. The latter two are Sweden and Russia’s entries for the Foreign Language Oscar, respectively.

The BIFAs, which have increasingly focused on showcasing new talent under the stewardship of co-directors Deena Wallace and Amy Gustin who took over in 2015, point “to a very bright future for British cinema” in this year’s nominations, the pair said.

The 2017 ceremony takes place at London’s Old Billingsgate on December 10 with host Mark Gatiss presiding.
