British Independent Film Awards Announce Their Nominations

The precursor season is underway folks, with today bringing the nominees for the British Independent Film Awards. The BIFAs, as they’re known, went hard for Saint Maud, which led the field, scoring 17 nominations for Rose Glass’ movie. Not fair behind, Remi Weekes’ His House received 16 citations, meaning that horror had a field day with this precursor. Also doing very well was Rocks from Sarah Gavron and Anu Henrique (15 nominations), Nick Rowland’s Calm With Horses (10 nods), and Florian Zeller’s The Father (six nominations). Within the International Film field, American movies like Never Rarely Sometimes Always and Nomadland were cited. It’s an overall interesting slate, so be sure to check out the list below…
