Three Bifa wins for The Personal History of David Copperfield

Armando Iannucci’s production team scoop gongs

The Personal History of David Copperfield – Armando Iannucci’s retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic novel – has scooped three accolades in the craft categories of the British Independent Film Awards.

It took Bifas for best casting by Sarah Crowe, best costume design by Suzie Harman and Robert Worley and best production design for Cristina Casali. 

Crowe and Casali both also won these awards in 2017 for their last film with Iannucci, The Death of Stalin.

Meanwhile, Howard Jones won the award for best effects for A Shaun The Sheep Movie: Farmageddon. Howard also won this award last year for Early Man.

Winners in the remaining categories will be unveiled at the ceremony in London on December 1.

As previously announced, Kristin Scott Thomas will receive this year’s Richard Harris Award for Outstanding Contribution by an actor to British film.
