The awards work to highlight the wealth of talent and diversity within the British film industry, with 2021’s list featuring some of the greatest names in British cinema and its brightest new talent side by side. 

Making his debut is Reggie Yates who has directed the new film Pirates which follows three 18-year-old friends go from North to South London to celebrate New Year’s Eve at the turn of the millennium. 

Another film nominated tonight is Belfast, which has been directed by Kenneth Brannagh and follows a young boy and his working-class Belfast family experience the tumultuous late 1960s. 

BIFA supports and celebrates the independent film community and promotes British film and talent to the public, both in the UK and internationally.   

Riz Ahmed was awarded the Richard Harris accolade for his role in Encounter, Shifty, Four Lions, Mogul Mowgli, at the 24th 

Presenting the award, Yaan Demange said: ‘He has championed the often ignored view…the industry did not make room for Riz, he carved a space for himself and a whole generation.’

Ahmed said: ‘I want to thank my teachers for telling me if I messed around in class I might get expelled but if I did it on the stage I might get a round of applause.’

The actor thanked his family for helping him to ‘learn the art of story-telling,’ and his sister for being ‘so dramatic’.

He added: ‘I grew up coat switching, I thought acting was about becoming someone else, I hope the next 15 years is about learning to take the masks off and offering more of myself, this is possible too, so if you feel held, thank you for holding me.’
