British Independent Film Awards BIFA

Celebrating 20 years of the best British Independent Film

BIFA Insider

Supported by Creative Skillset, the BIFA Insider series will give recent graduates or those in their final year at university or film school an insight into the skills and creativity behind the best in British independent film.

Participants will watch a BIFA-nominated or winning film for free via the BFI Player. The screening will be accompanied by a live Twitter commentary from BIFA-nominated or winning filmmakers and followed by a live streamed Q&A.

BIFA exists to help British filmmaking and film-going thrive. Part of our role is to identify and encourage emerging talent, support and celebrate the independent film community, and promote British film and talent to the public.

BIFA Insider will promote British films, filmmakers and film industry to those studying for a career in film and the creative industries. It will help to inspire the next generation of filmmakers, craftspeople and film-goers.

"The BIFAs are a key date in the awards calendar spotlighting the brightest and best British films and talent. BIFA Insider will give the next generation – who may be future nominees themselves - unique insights from world class practitioners."
