William Oldroyd’s feature directorial debut Lady Macbeth has scored a leading 15 nominations for this year’s British Independent Film Awards. The drama adapted by Alice Birch from the 19th century novel Lady Macbeth Of The Mtsensk, stars Florence Pugh as a young bride sold into marriage and whose innocence is slowly corrupted by her circumstance and yearning to rebel.

After premiering in Toronto last year, the film went on to a series of festivals and made its U.S. bow at Sundance. It was released by Altitude in the UK in April. Among its mentions are Best Director, Actress, Debut Screenwriter, Breakthrough Producer (Fodhla Cronin O’Reilly), Screenplay and Best British Independent Film.

Twentieth Century Fox
Coming up behind it are I Am Not A Witch from Rungano Nyoni (a Deadline One to Watch in Cannes this year) and Armando Iannucci’s The Death Of Stalin with 13 nominations each. They are followed by God’s Own Country, helmed by Francis Lee, and Martin McDonagh’s Venice breakout Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri from Fox Searchlight.

Each of the above are nominated in the Best British Independent Film category as well as Best Director and Screenplay. In the acting races, Three Billboards‘ Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell are facing off for Supporting while Frances McDormand is up for Best Actress.

Among the Best International Independent Film nominees are Jordan Peele’s Get Out and Cannes winners The Square and Loveless. The latter two are Sweden and Russia’s entries for the Foreign Language Oscar, respectively.

The BIFAs, which have increasingly focused on showcasing new talent under the stewardship of co-directors Deena Wallace and Amy Gustin who took over in 2015, point “to a very bright future for British cinema” in this year’s nominations, the pair said.

The 2017 ceremony takes place at London’s Old Billingsgate on December 10 with host Mark Gatiss presiding.
