All Of Us Strangers, Rye Lane Top 2023 British Independent Film Awards Nominations

The British Independent Film Awards (BIFA) have announced the nominations for their 2023 awards, via hosts Susan Wokoma and Morfydd Clark from One Hundred Shoreditch, London on November 2.

Raine Allen-Miller‘s Rye Lane, which premiered at Sundance back in January, topped the other films with 16 nominations, followed by 14 nominations each for Andrew Haigh‘s All Of Us Strangers and Charlotte Regan‘s Scrapper. Molly Manning Walker’s How to Have Sex — another more recent festival favorite — received 13 nominations, while Sam H. Freeman and Ng Choon Ping Femme received 11.

26 British feature films were recognized by the UK’s equivalent to the Independent Spirit awards, which very much focuses on films made in Great Britain.

Andrew Scott was the sole male nominee for Best Lead Performance in the awards’ genderless acting category, for his performance in All of Us Strangers, with previous BIFA nominees Tilda SwintonPaul Mescal, Jamie Bell, and Amir El-Masry also being recognized in performance categories.

Rye Lane was helped by director Raine Allen-Miller being nominated both for Best Director and Best Debut Director, as well as the film being nominated for Best Screenplay, Best Debut Screenwriter, and the film’s leads Vivian Oparah and David Jonsson receiving a nomination for Best Joint Lead Performance and Oparah also being nominated for her Breakthrough Performance.

The Richard Harris Award, introduced in 2002 in honor of Richard Harris, will be announced soon, recognizing outstanding contributions to British film by an actor. Previous winners have been Daniel Day-Lewis, Julie Walters, John Hurt, Emma Thompson, Judi Dench, Kristin Scott Thomas, Glenda Jackson, Riz Ahmed, and Samantha Morton in 2022.

The BIFA ceremony host and the juries for the awards will also be announced at a later date.
