For the first time, cash awards of £250 will be presented in the categories of best documentary film, best feature film, and best short film.

The BUFF nomination adds to a growing number of international accolades for ‘Black Mail’ since its trailer debuted in August.

It won the Best Trailer prize at the 2021 Changing Face International festival in September.
