From the BIFA website…
The British Independent Film Awards (BIFA) feature some of the most innovative and creative independent filmmaking and filmmakers in the UK. They identify and encourage emerging talent, support and celebrate the independent film community and promote British film and talent to the public.
Each year, the BIFA voters view the 300+ entered films. After a rigorous discussion-based selection process the long list and nominations are decided by confidential vote. The winners in most categories are decided by independent juries, newly appointed each year and not involved in the nominations process. These juries, comprised of leading professionals and talent from the British film industry, meet to discuss the nominated films and the winners are decided by secret ballot. The winners for Best British Independent Film, Best International Independent Film, The Raindance Discovery Award, Best British Short Film and the nine craft categories are decided by a confidential vote amongst all BIFA voters. Once the votes have been counted and validated, the winners are announced at The British Independent Film Awards.
We are so proud to be BIFA-Qualifying, follow them (and us!) to keep updated @BIFA_film
