BIFA winners!

The winners of the tenth British Independent Film Awards (BIFAs) were announced this week, and it's a brilliant bunch, with Joy Division classic Control receiving deserved acclaim.

As Johanna von Fischer and Tessa Collinson, BIFA co-director says: “A decade ago, the need for an awards ceremony that celebrated British independent film talent was identified. We are now ten years on and BIFA has grown to celebrate the increasingly diverse range of talent out there. This year’s winners are no exception to this rule with Anton Corbijn winning the Douglas Hickox award and Judi Dench winning Best Actress.”
