Warp Films:
8 BIFA nominations for Warp Films


Warp Films / Warp X receives 7 British Independent Film Award Nominations for Berberian Sound Studio whilst Warp Films' Swimmer is nominated for best short.

This year Warp Films & Warp X have received 7 BIFA nominations: for feature film Berberian Sound Studio co-produced with Illuminations Films and also a nomination for Lynne Ramsay's short Swimmer.

Berberian Sound Studio, a Warp X and Illuminations co production, faces stiff competition for Best British Independent Film battling against Sightseers and The Imposter  for the award. Toby Jones is up against Terence Stamp (A Song For Marion) and Tim Roth (Broken) and Peter Strickland vies for top directing prize with Ben Wheatley (Sightseers) and Rufus Norris (Broken). 

Swimmer, which was commissioned as part of the Olympic celebrations this year by Locog, directed by Lynne Ramsay is nominated for Best Britsh Short. 

Last year Warp Films and Warp X gathered 18 nominations form the BIFAs across three films; Kill List, Submarine and Tyrannosaur. Tyrannosaur won best independent film of the year and best actress went to Olivia Colman, Submarine won best Screenplay by director Richard Ayoade and Kill List won a BIFA via Michael Smiley for best supporting actor.

The 15 annual British Independent Film Awards (BIFAs) will take place on Sunday 9 of December 2012, at Old Billingsgate in Central London. The British Independent Film Awards set out to celebrate merit and achievement in independently funded British filmmaking, to honour new talent, and to promote British films and filmmaking to a wider public.

Berberian Sound Studio Synopsis

It's 1976 and Gilderoy, an introverted sound engineer of a very sensitive disposition from Dorking, specialising in local nature documentaries, goes to Italy to work on the horror film ‘The Equestrian Vortex’ by exploitation maestro Giancarlo Santini. Only the cheapest, nastiest and most abhorred films pass through the run-down Berberian Sound Studio doors though and in this crazy, dodgy and alien environment Gilderoy composes bloodcurdling sounds from hacked vegetables, works out how to create chainsaw effects and mixes screams. But soon life begins to imitate art as both time and realities begin to shift – and Gilderoy finds himself lost in an otherworldly spiral of on screen witchcraft, off-screen sexual intrigue and sonic and personal mayhem. From Strickland comes an evocative celebration and delicious deconstruction of the Italian horror genre, full of sly references and a brilliant soundtrack by Broadcast.
