The British Independent Film Festival was celebrated On Friday 11th and Saturday 12th of May in Empire Cinema in Leicester Square, London.
There were 14 films in the festival, screened the two days, with BAFTA award winning directors, producers and actors involved.
This is a festival run by independent filmmakers for independent filmmakers. It is organised by the Film Festival Guild and, because of this, has links to festivals around the world.
The Festival provides opportunities for independent filmmakers to have their films screened at great red carpet-style venues to a passionate audience of film professionals, film students, journalists and the general public. The Festival aims to promote and support independent filmmaking.
There are a number of awards up for grabs at the Festival, including the prestigious British Lion Award for Achievement in Film, which is given to any member of cast or crew on a film who has shown excellent independent filmmaking quality of work and spirit.
