“Leaving”, a short film (featuring original music by Dan Berridge/Broadway Project), is one of five films nominated for the prestigious award for Best British Short at this year’s BIFA awards.

To be eligible for the Short Film category, the film must have already won an award at a festival, making the competition particularly strong. Kierston Wareing, the female lead in Leaving, has also received one of eight nominations for Andrea Arnold’s feature film Fish Tank for Best Supporting Actress.

Leaving has already enjoyed success at various festivals and competitions including 1st prize at TCM classic shorts competition in 2008, the Silver Dragon at Crakow Film Festival, Best Film from the South West at Encounters and the Fuji Award for Best Cinematography.
