Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Thursday, November 02, 2017

Yesterday BIFA or the British Independent Film Awards announced their 2017 award nominations. And if anything this has highlighted how many great films I still have to see - and after watching the trailers for Martin McDonagh's Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and  Armando Iannucci's The Death of Stalin they are on my must see list along with: Johnny Harris' Jawbone, Paul McGuigan's Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool, Emily Beecham's Daphne, Sally Potter’s The Party and Paddy Considine's Journeyman. Additionally I can't wait to hear Carter Burwell's Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Paul Weller's Jawbone soundtracks.

     Below is the official press release, full nominations list as well as an interesting breakdown of nominations by film and distributor. The winners will be announced at the British Independent Film Awards Ceremony on Sunday 10 December
