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)
