FOUR NOMINATIONS FOR PETERLOO AT BIFA!

November 06, 2018

We are thrilled that Peterloo has received four BIFA nominations! We’re also super excited to announce that our LipSync VFX team have been nominated for Best Effects. A grand total of thirty seven British feature films were nominated & the winners will be announced at the 21st British Independent Film Awards on 2nd December.

An epic portrayal of the events surrounding the infamous 1819 Peterloo Massacre, where a peaceful pro-democracy rally at St Peter’s Field in Manchester turned into one of the bloodiest and most notorious episodes in British history. The massacre saw British government forces charge into a crowd of over 60,000 that had gathered to demand political reform and protest against rising levels of poverty. Many protestors were killed and hundreds more injured, sparking a nationwide outcry but also further government suppression. The Peterloo Massacre was a defining moment in British democracy which also played a significant role in the founding of The Guardian newspaper.

Peterloo’s Nominations are:
Best Costume Design (Jacqueline Durran)
Best Make Up & Hair Design (Christine Blundell)
Best Production Design (Suzie Davies)
Best Effects (George Zwier & Paul Driver)
