Forty-four Broadway shows opened their doors in the calendar year 2012. Productions welcomed new cast members galore, while a handful of long-running favorites closed up shop. And then there were the off-Broadway openings, the benefits, and the endless stream of one-night-only events, the sheer number of which we couldn’t count. TheaterMania’s photographers were on hand to capture it all. As the year comes to a close, we share our favorite curtain calls of 2012.

NOMINATIONS, HOST AND JURY REVEALED FOR THE 15th ANNUAL MOËT BRITISH INDEPENDENT FILM AWARDS
London, Monday 5 November The nominations for the 15th annual Moët British Independent Film Awards were announced today, at St Martins Lane, London by actor and BIFA Patron, Adrian Lester.
Joint Directors, The Moët British Independent Film Awards’ Johanna von Fischer & Tessa Collinson said: “In this our 15th year, we are delighted to welcome back six-time former host James Nesbitt. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our dedicated Pre-Selection Committee who watched over 200 films in order to produce the 2012 Nominations, which once again reflect the diverse range of British film talent, and also welcome this year’s appointed independent Jury who will now spend the next month considering the nominated films.”
Nominations for Best Actress go to Alice Lowe for Sightseers, Andrea Riseborough for Shadow Dancer, Elle Fanning for Ginger & Rosa, Judi Dench for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Meryl Streep for The Iron Lady. Along with Tim Roth for Broken, leading men hoping to take home the Best Actor award include Riz Ahmed for Ill Manors, Steve Oram for Sightseers, Terence Stamp for Song for Marion and Toby Jones for Berberian Sound Studio.
“At 15 years old, the BIFAs are now firmly established as a key date in the UK film industry calendar and we’re delighted to be supporting this year’s awards. The BIFAs are the UK’s only awards focusing entirely on independent British films, as such they really help to shine a spotlight on the vast range and breadth of excellence in independent UK filmmaking – helping to promote independent British films to new audiences, and setting a focus on the Best of British just as the international awards season begins.”
The Raindance Award nominees for 2012 include: Frank, Strings, Love Tomorrow City Slacker and Jason Becker: Not Dead Yet. This award honours exceptional achievement for filmmakers working against the odds, often with little or no industry support. Elliot Grove, Founder Raindance Film Festival and Moët British Independent Film Awards added: “The Raindance Award has become the beacon for new talent. These five films show what Raindance is all about: great acting, storytelling and production values, each made with limited resources against impossible odds.”
The winners will be announced at the much anticipated 15th awards ceremony which will be hosted by actor and BIFA Patron, James Nesbitt, who returns for his seventh year on Sunday 9 December at the impressive Old Billingsgate in London.
The Moët British Independent Film Awards is proud to announce the following nominees for this year’s awards:

Said Moët British Independent Film Awards joint directors Johanna von Fischer and Tessa Collinson: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank our dedicated pre-selection committee who watched over 200 films in order to produce the 2012 nominations, which once again reflect the diverse range of British film talent, and also welcome this year’s appointed independent jury who will now spend the next month considering the nominated films.”
BFI CEO Amanda Nevill noted: “At 15 years old, the BIFAs are now firmly established as a key date in the UK film industry calendar and we’re delighted to be supporting this year’s awards.”
Nevill noted that because the BIFAs are the U.K.’s only awards focusing entirely on independent British films, “as such they really help to shine a spotlight on the vast range and breadth of excellence in independent U.K. filmmaking – helping to promote independent British films to new audiences, and setting a focus on the Best of British just as the international awards season begins.”
