The Ambassadors on the red carpet


The Moët British Independent Film Awards highlight and reward the best, most innovative and creative independent filmmaking and filmmakers in the UK. They identify and encourage emerging talent, support and celebrate the independent film community and promote British film and talent to the public.

Now in its 18th year, BIFA was founded by Elliot Grove and Suzanne Ballantyne in 1998, who also founded the Raindance Film Festival in 1993.

The Ambassadors at the BIFA

Earlier tonight, despite having worked a full-day in the West End and Victoria, five of our fantastic Ambassadors gave up their Sunday evening to meet and greet the great and the good of British film at the annual British Independent Film Awards.

The Ambassadors escorted the likes of Dame Judi Dench, Olivia Colman, Julie Walters, Maxine Peake, Sir Tom Courtney and Colin Farrell down the red carpet and into the venue at the Old Billingsgate Market in the City of London.

It was a night when the stars literally came out – but if there were awards for friendliness, smiles, courtesy, professionalism and dedication, our famous five (from left to right, Tony, Rukije, Patricia, Luis and Abby) would have wiped the board.

Thank you guys – it was a great night. Here’s to the Oscars next year!
