Congratulations to our colleague Keith Griffiths, producer for our sister company Illuminations Films (along with Mark Burke for Warp X) of the Peter Strickland-directed feature Berberian Sound Studio. This is Screen Daily on the film’s success last night:
Berberian Sound Studio scooped the biggest haul of trophies at the 15th British Independent Film Awards but was beaten to the Best Film prize by Rufus Norris’ drama Broken. Berberian Sound Studio won four awards including Best Director for Peter Strickland and Best Actor for Toby Jones. It also won Best Achievement in Production and Best Technical Achievement for the work of Joakim Sundstom and Stevie Haywood on the film’s sound design.
Empire has the full list of winners and nominees, and Steve Rose for the Guardian has a new interview with Toby Jones. Illuminations Films is our sister company, run by Keith and Simon Field, that specialises in producing distinctive and imaginative feature and short films, installations and multi-platform projects, both fiction and documentary; more will be revealed when the company’s parallel website goes live next month. The pressbook for Berberian Sound Studio can be found here courtesy of distributors Artificial Eye and the DVD and Blu-ray are released in the UK on 31 December. Finally, here’s the 90-second trailer:
