The Moët British Independent Film Awards is an annual award ceremony celebrating achievement in independently funded British film and cinema. GSP has a long standing relationship with BIFA and we have produced the event for the last 15years. The event was sponsored by Moet and Chandon, with this being the 6th year they have sponsored the awards. The extraordinary and unique Old Billingsgate made for a show-stopping backdrop for this special event and has been the home to the Moët British Independent Film Awards for the last six years. Benefitting from prime position on the Thames, this iconic London landmark is the perfect setting for the Moët BIFAs to celebrate in style.
This year’s awards took on a slightly different format with guests entering the venue from the riverside entrance where they followed the red carpet through to a Moet sponsored drinks reception. Guests were handed miniature bottles of Moet & Chandon as they arrived and were encouraged to climb to the top of the Moet champagne fountain to pour a magnum of Moet down it.
The awards ceremony was kicked off by Host Richard Ayoade who set the tone for a sardonic and champagne-fueled evening. Nominees who attended included the likes of Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, Julie Walters, Collin Farrell and Many more. Kate Winslet was presented with The Variety Award and Chitwetel Ejiofor was awarded The Richard Harris award. The awards were also live streamed to an online audience.
After the awards ceremony guests were invited to continue their celebrations at the BIFA after- party which was sponsored by Jameson’s whiskey bar, with DJ Dan Browne providing the music
