Raindance 2017 films nominated for British Independent Film Awards

Congratulations to feature films In Another Life, Isolani, and short film Work for receiving British Independent Film Awards nominations! All three films were screened at the 25th Raindance Film Festival, and we are excited to see them continue their journey and garner recognition.

 

In Another Life

Nominated for the Discovery Award at the British Independent Film Awards.

In Another Life, from debut director Jason Wingard, follows the harrowing journey of a Syrian refugee struggling to reunite with his wife.

After being forced to flee war-torn Syria, Adnan and his wife Bana are separated on route through France. Adnan faces the crippling challenge of living in ‘The Jungle’. His only option is to risk his life in a series of desperate attempts to cross the channel, hoping he will be reunited with his wife. Set against the backdrop of the refugee camp known as ‘The Jungle’ in Calais the film combines documentary footage and real-life interviews with a dramatic narrative to give a voice to refugees that are seldom heard.

In Another Life had its World Premiere at Raindance Film Festival 2017, where it won the Best UK Feature award.

Isolani

Nominated for the Discovery Award at the British Independent Film Awards.

From writer/director R. Paul Wilson, Scottish thriller Isolani is the story of a mother fighting to protect her son after witnessing a murder.

After she witnesses a brutal murder, a young single mother becomes a pawn in a deadly game of deception. To protect her son and start a new life, she must outwit an ambitious prosecutor, a corrupt detective and a desperate killer. Fantastic acting, clever lighting and cinematography help maintain a creeping tension from beginning to end in this edge-of-seat film.

Isolani had its World Premiere at Raindance Film Festival 2017, where it was nominated for Best UK Feature.

 

Work

Nominated for the Best British Short Film award at the British Independent Film Awards.

A teenager’s perspective of the world around her begins to shift as she is confronted with its capacity for injustice.

Work was nominated for Best UK Short at Raindance Film Festival 2017.

Work

The winners will be announced at the British Independent Film Awards ceremony on Sunday 10 December.
