The 2016 British Independent Film Award nominations were announced today and My Feral Heart has been nominated three times!!! Steven Brandon has received huge recognition with not one, but two nominations for Most Promising Newcomer AND Best Actor. Not only that but, Shana Swash has also been nominated as Best Supporting Actress for her glorious performance as Eve. My Feral Heart is in fantastic company alongside I Daniel Blake, A United Kingdom and Prevenge, to name a few. My Feral Heart is part of a new wave of trail blazing and audience grabbing cinema that refuses to compromise. Hollywood names are not necessary in order for a film to be able to enthrall an audience and the award nominating performances from Steven Brandon and Shana Swash need to be noticed. Without being preachy or demonstrating a victim mentality, My Feral Heart delivers a message at a time where Downs Syndrome needs greater understanding from all walks of life.
WhiteScreen is honoured to be involved with My Feral Heart as this clearly shows that the spotlight HAS been turned up on the real talent.
