Northbank company, BIFA, took centre stage at the start of the month to recognise brilliance in British film. The Moët British Independent Film Awards highlight and reward the best, most innovative and creative independent filmmaking and filmmakers in the UK. The Awards identify and encourage emerging talent, support and celebrate the independent film community and promote British film and talent to the public.
Now in its 18th year, BIFA was founded by Elliot Grove and Suzanne Ballantyne in 1998, who also founded the Raindance Film Festival in 1993. Get to know Elliot Grove a little better in the latest Northbank Magazine here.
This year The Northbank BID was delighted to work with BIFA to provide support when welcoming guests and escorting them up the red carpet with help from the wonderful Welcome People ambassadors. See photos here.
