'His House'

'Saint Maud,' 'The Father,' 'Rocks,' 'Mogul Mowgli' and 'The Reason I Jump' were also BIFA craft winners, with details of February's postponed main ceremony set to be unveiled soon.

The British Independent Film Awards — better knowns as the BIFAs — have unveiled the winners of its nine craft categories.

Remi Weekes' horror His House — which landed 16 nominations in total — won the honor for best effects (for Pedro Sabrosa and Stegano Pepin) and best production design (for Jacqueline Abrahams who was previously nominated for the award in 2017 for Lady Macbeth). Philippa Lowthorpe's Misbehaviour also picked up two awards, for costume design and make up & hair, for Charlotte Walter and Jill Sweeney, respectively.

Meanwhile, Saint Maud — which topped the BIFA nominations list with 17 — won best cinematography for Ben Fordesman, Yorgos Lambprinoo was awarded best editing for his work on The Father, Mogul Mowgli claimed best music for composer Paul Corley and The Reason I Jump landed best sound for Nick Ryan, Ben Baird and Sara De OIiveira Lima.

Lucy Pardee was awarded best casting sponsored for Rocks, which was cast through a collaborative process that involved workshopping with young untrained actors to explore their characters.

Traditionally held in early December, the 2020 BIFA awards were postponed due to the COVID-19 crisis, with the main winners' ceremony now set to be held in February. More details on the event will be revealed next week.
