British Independent Film Awards removes gender in acting categories
Further changes include introducing joint lead and ensemble performance categories.

The British Independent Film Awards (BIFAs) will remove gendered acting categories from this year as part of series of wider changes to its line-up of awards.

The individual male and female categories will be consolidated into awards for best lead performance and best supporting performance. Up to 10 nominees are eligible in each category.

BIFA will also introduce a best joint lead performance – for two or exceptionally three – performances that are the joint focus of the film as well as a prize for best ensemble. Up to five nominees will be selected for these categories.
