BIFAs to be streamed online for first time at LoveFilm.com
This year’s Moët British Independent Film Awards will be streamed live on LoveFilm.com.
It will mark the first live Internet stream of the BIFAs. The broadcast will include red carpet arrivals as well as the ceremony. Viewers will be able to Tweet questions to stars and reactions to winners.
The ceremony will be held at London’s Old Billingsgate on Dec 4.
BIFA’s Johanna von Fisher and Tessa Collinson said: “LoveFilm couldn’t be a more fitting partner for us and we are thrilled that true fans of British cinema will be able to watch all the action as it unfolds on the night. It is also a great opportunity to introduce a wider audience to independent cinema, hopefully shining the light on those films with smaller marketing budgets”
Helen Cowley, Head of Editorial & Digital Content at LoveFilm UK added: “In a first for LoveFilm we are delighted to be working with the Moët British Independent Film Awards on this unique partnership. Bringing this great event to the screens of our 1.7million subscribers and beyond. We’re looking forward to a fantastic night!”
