Also announced was a series of screenings of BIFA-nominated and winning films, supported by the BFI. The partnership will see a selection of nominated films screened right across the UK from 23 November, the full programme for which will be announced on 11 November.

Laurence Green, chairman of the BIFA Board, said, “BIFA’s committed voters watched over 260 films this year – more than ever.  After thousands of hours of viewing, nearly 30 jury meetings and two rounds of voting, their nominations cover a breathtaking range of British films and filmmaking talent. With the support of the BFI, BIFA is delighted to be making it possible for the public to see these films before the winners are announced, bringing them to cinemas right across the UK and so giving audiences the chance to discover the very best of British film for themselves.” 

The winners will be announced at awards ceremony on 6 December. The full list of nominees:
