BIFF Entries Shine In 2011 Critics’ Poll

December 20, 2011

No less than eight of the movies screened at this year’s Bermuda International Film Festival were in the running for  Best Film in the 2011 IndieWire critics’ poll – perhaps the top annual ranking of independent productions in the world.

Shortlisted as being among the year’s most impressive films were 2011 BIFF selections “Of Gods & Men”, “Incendies”, “Submarine”, “Position Among the Stars”, “Armadillo”, “In a Better World”, “Kaboom” and “My Perestroika.”

The 14th annual BIFF festival ran from March 18-24 and screened a total of more than 70 films both in and out of competition.

The quirky British coming of age comedy “Submarine”, written and directed by Richard Ayoade and adapted from a novel by John Dunthorne, earned the award for Best Narrative Feature.

And the documentary “The Redemption of General Butt Naked” — the story of a ruthless Liberian warlord — was honoured as the best documentary in competition at BIFF 2011.

The short film “Lost” took the Bermuda Shorts prize.
