Warp Films Swimmer Wins Best Short Film BAFTA

Swimmer:
Wins Best Short Film BAFTA

 

Lynne Ramsay's 'Swimmer' has been awarded the Best Short Film BAFTA. The ceremony took place on Sunday 10 February at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, London.

Producers Diarmid Scrimshaw and Peter Carlton were present to accept the award. The ceremony can be seen on the BBC's iPlayer service here.

Swimmer is a poetic journey through the waterways and coastline of the British Isles, following a lone swimmer through lakes, rivers and coves. The journey is framed by a soundtrack of seminal British music, combined with a sound tapestry of hydrophonic recordings and snippets of bankside conversations. The film aims to give a real feel for the diversity of landscape and people of Britain.

Produced by Warp Films and originally commissioned as part of the Olympic festival, Lynne Ramsay's Swimmer is one of four short films by British directors which also include Mike Leigh and Senna's Asif Kapadia.
