2013 date announced for Moët British Independent Film Awards…
Submissions are now open for this year’s Moët British Independent Film Awards, which will be held on Sunday 8 December 2013.
Nominations will be announced on Monday 11 November 2013, when sales of the main sponsor’s product – Moët & Chandon return as title sponsor for the fourth year – will no doubt rise.
Nominees would be wise to celebrate those nods, too – as they’ll have won chance to join prestigious company.
In 2012 Bart Layton picked up the The Douglas Hickox Award for Best Debut Director for The Imposter, Broken took home the coveted Best British Independent Film, Andrea Riseborough won Best Actress for Shadow Dancer, while Toby Jones (Best Actor) and Peter Strickland (Best Director) won for their work on Berberian Sound Studio.
Now in its 16th year, the awards were created by Raindance in 1998 and set out to celebrate merit and achievement in independently funded British filmmaking, to honour new talent, and to promote British films and filmmaking to a wider public.
