The Favourite wins a record 10 prizes at 2018 BIFAs

Yorgos Lanthimos' period romp The Favourite won Best British Independent Film, Best Director, Best Actress (for Olivia Colman), Best Supporting Actress (for Rachel Weisz) and Best Screenplay at last night's BIFA awards, taking its total up to ten, including the previously announced craft awards. The achievement marks a BIFA record for prizes taken home by a single film. 

Creative Europe supported the film under the previous MEDIA programme in 2003, with a €50,000 Single Project grant awarded to Scarlet Films to aid its development. 

Elsewhere, Early Man picked up the award for Best Visual Effects. The Nick Park production received support through Creative Europe's Automatic Distribution scheme for its releases in France and Finland.
