Voter Registration

We welcome registrations from past BIFA nominees and those who were HoDs on films nominated in the following categories:

  • Best British Independent Film
  • Best Director
  • Best Actor/Actress/Supporting Actor/Supporting Actress
  • Best Documentary

We also welcome industry professionals who haven't worked on BIFA-nominated films but who have significant (three or more years') experience in independent feature film production in a creative capacity.

Before filling out the form, please read over the BIFA Voter Duties & Responsibilities guide to understand the various ways that you can get involved in deciding the BIFA nominees and winners.

This will be used only for correspondence about film viewing and voting
Select as many as you want. Nominations are decided through rigorous process of viewing, discussion and voting. The main jury will select the winners in most categories, with smaller juries of practitioners deciding the winners of the newcomer categories. All registered voters can vote for the winner of Best British Independent Film
Select as many as you wish, in order of preference please. You don't have to select them all
