True Things, starring Ruth Wilson and Tom Burke had its World Premiere at Venice Film Festival before its UK Premiere in London.
The other IWC nominees were Lee Haven Jones for his debut feature The Feast, and Rob Savage for second feature Dashcam. Wootliff was chosen by a panel comprised of actor and filmmaker Phoebe Waller-Bridge and BFI CEO Ben Roberts.
