Sunday night hosted the fantastic British Independent Film Awards (#BIFA2016) who help shine a light on those British Indie films that you have, and haven’t yet, heard of. They love bringing to your attention many of the most innovative and creative talents the UK has to offer and let us assure you, there’s an absolute massive array of super talented people who deserve more time in the limelight.

The one and only Jennifer Saunders hosted tonight and here’s the run down, with the winners in bold, of what went down. We also highly recommend watching Brett Goldstein‘s acceptance speech in which he gave Adult Life Skills co-star Jodie Whittaker an entertaining ‘Cannot make it tonight’ thank you to read out

Congratulations to all nominees and winners!
