Documentary For Sama, the intimate and scarring portrait of a young mother's experience of the Syrian civil war, has scored Best British Independent Film, Best Director and Best Documentary at the 2019 British Independent Film Awards ceremony in London. Scroll down for a full list of winners.

The film’s three awards announced this evening were added to the previously announced win for Best Editing. Waad Al-Khateab and Edward Watts direct the Channel4 and PBS Frontline feature, which has played at festivals the world over.

The Personal History Of David Copperfield won two awards on the night: Best Supporting Actor for Hugh Laurie, who plays Mr Dick in Armando Iannucci's adaptation of the Dickens classic, and Best Screenplay sponsored by BBC Films for writers Armando Iannucci and Simon Blackwell. Previously announced had been the film's awards for Best Casting sponsored by Casting Society of America and Spotlight, Best Costume Design, and Best Production Design.

Josh O'Connor's portrayal of a lovesick romantic in Harry Wootliff's debut feature Only You won him the Best Actor award — his second after 2017's win for his role in Francis Lee's Yorkshire-set love story God's Own Country. The film's director Harry Wootliff was named Best Debut Director sponsored by Kodak & Pinewood.

Renée Zellweger won Best Actress for her performance as Judy Garland in Rupert Goold's critically-acclaimed biopic, Judy. The film had also previously won Best Make Up & Hair Design sponsored by MAC.

Sam Adewunmi was named Most Promising Newcomer for his first significant performance in a British feature film, Shola Amoo's The Last Tree. In the film he plays Femi, a British boy of Nigerian heritage struggling to adjust to a new life in London. His co-star Ruthxjiah Bellenea received the award for Best Supporting Actress.

Writer Emma Jane Unsworth won the award for Debut Screenwriter sponsored by Film4 for her big-screen adaptation of her second novel, Animals, which stars Holliday Grainger and Alia Shawkat as a pair of hedonistic, hard-partying best friends whose lives begin to change as they enter their 30s.

Producers Kate Byers and Linn Waite won the Breakthrough Producer award for their film Bait. Written and directed by Cornish filmmaker Mark Jenkin, the movie follows Martin, a fisherman without a boat struggling to survive in a changing economy. The film is set in the modern-day but was shot on hand-processed, black and white film stock on a hand-cranked '80s Bolex camera, with all sound added in post-production.

Best International Independent Film was won by Bong Joon Ho's Parasite, the lauded dark comedy about an unemployed, unmotivated patriarch and his equally unambitious family who catch a lucky break when they become entangled with a wehy household.

The Raindance Discovery Award went to Children of the Snow Land. The documentary tells the stories of children born in the high Himalayas of Nepal who spend more than 10 years in schools away from their parents before making the long and dangerous trek back home. Meanwhile, the award for Best British Short Film supported by BFI NETWORK, went to Dekel Berenson's Anna.

The Special Jury Prize was presented to Amanda Nevill, the outgoing CEO of the British Film Institute. As previously announced, Kristin Scott Thomas was presented with the 2019 Richard Harris Award for Outstanding Contribution by an Actor to British Film.

Other previously announced Craft awards were Best Effects for A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon, Best Music sponsored by Universal Music Publishing Group for Wild Rose and Best Cinematography and Best Sound supported by Halo Post for Beats.
