BFI Secure 37 BIFA Nominations

The British Independent Film Awards have announced the nominees for 2011, and films financed through the BFI Film Fund feature strongly with a total of 37 nominations.
Of the nominated Film Fund-backed films, Steve McQueen's Shame and Paddy Considine's Tyrannosaur lead with seven nominations each.
Lynne Ramsay's We Need to Talk About Kevin, which was last week named Best Film at the BFI London Film Festival, and Ben Wheatley's Kill List have both received six nominations, with Richard Ayoade's Submarine picking up five.
John Michael McDonagh's The Guard has received three nominations, Joe Cornish's Attack The Block has two and James Marsh's Project Nim is nominated in the Best Documentary category.
The Lottery-backed Film Fund was set up by the UK Film Council to invest in creative, distinctive and entertaining work. On 1 April 2011 the BFI became the lead body for film in the UK, at which point we took responsibility for all UK Film Council activity. At the BFI the Film Fund continues to back bold and exciting British films and filmmakers.
Created in 1998, The British Independent Film Awards 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.
The BIFA ceremony 2011 will take place on Sunday 4 December at Old Billingsgate in Central London.
