BFI, BIFAs team on screening initiative

Exclusive: Organisations will put on discounted screenings of films that win the top prizes at this year’s BIFAs ceremony.

The British Independent Film Awards and the BFI are teaming on Bifa Independents, a year-round public screening programme which will give audiences across the UK an opportunity to view Bifa-nominated or award-winning films at a reduced rate.

Supported by the British Film Institute with National Lottery funding, the films will be screened at a total of 25 Vue, Odeon and Everyman cinemas nationwide.

Tickets for the screenings will be significantly discounted from the cinemas’ usual rates, the companies confirmed.

The first film to be shown starting Sunday 11 December will be the winner of the 2016 Bifa Best British Independent Film Award, to be announced at the Bifa ceremony on Sunday 4 December at Old Billingsgate.

This year’s nominees include American Honey; Couple In A Hole; I, Daniel Blake; Notes on Blindness and Under The Shadow.
