Filmed, cut and finished for £6,000, Little Pieces is the debut feature film of writer/director Adam Nelson.

It is going up against Oscar and Bafta-nominated heavyweights such as Lady in the Van, 45 Years, The Danish Girl, and Youth.

Mr Nelson said: ‘It’s an honour to be nominated alongside films of such a calibre and to be invited to attend is enough of a victory; that said I wouldn’t mind taking the award away from a heavyweight film either.’
