Andrea Riseborough was awarded for her gritty role as Colette McVeigh in 'Shadow Dancer'

'Berberian Sound Studio', in which a sound engineer's work for an Italian horror studio becomes a terrifying case of life imitating art, collected the most awards of the night, with four trophies for Best Director, Best Actor, Best Achievement in Production and Best Technical Achievement.

But the evening's biggest award, Best British Independent Film, went to 'Broken', starring Tim Roth, Rory Kinnear and Cillian Murphy, who also won for Best Supporting Actor.

Jude Law was at the ceremony to receive the Variety Award for sustained effort through his career.

"It feels great, there is no tension here tonight," he said.

"I am very proud to be a Brit in a global film industry, and to be recognised after 20 years of kind of hard work is a good thing."

Previous recipients include Sir Michael Caine, Dame Helen Mirren and Sir Kenneth Branagh.

Law recently accused the Government of "cultural vandalism" with its plans to cut art education from the school syllabus.

The 39-year-old added: "Let's not ruin its future by stopping kids having free and fair artistic education."
