Metro Manila Wins Big At The BIFAs
And James McAvoy is Best Actor for Filth

08 December 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: British Independent Film Awards

Though the British Independent Film Awards is usually a good night for all who attend (think a boozy, less smarmy version of the Oscars), it was particularly sweet for director Sean Ellis and his much-praised Metro Manila, which picked up Best British Independent Film, Best Achievement In Production and Best Director on Sunday night.

James McAvoy also did well, walking away with Best Actor for Filth (no pigs were harmed in the making of acceptance speeches), while Lindsay Duncan was Best Actress for Le Week-End. Best Supporting Actress went to Imogen Poots for The Look Of Love and Aussie Ben Mendelsohn scored Best Supporting Actor for Starred Up.

Blue Is The Warmest Colour was named as Best International Independent Film, with For Those In Peril’s Paul Wright winning Best Debut Director. The Selfish Giant won Best Technical Achievement for casting director Amy Hubbard, and Steven Knight got Best Screenplay for real-time thriller Locke. Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer was named Best Documentary.

For the full listing, head to the BIFA site.
