British Unbiased Movie Awards Announce Their Nominations


The pre-season is underway and today brings the nominees for the British Independent Film Awards. The BIFAs, as they are called, have been tough on Saint Maud, who led the field and got 17 nominations for Rose Glass’ film. Remi Weekes’ His House received 16 quotes, meaning the horror had a great day with this forerunner. Rocks by Sarah Gavron and Anu Henrique (15 nominations), Nick Rowland’s Calm With Horses (10 nods) and Florian Zeller’s The Father (six nominations) also do very well. In the realm of international film, American films like Never Seldom were sometimes always cited and Nomadland. It’s an interesting list overall, so be sure to check out the list below …
