Redirected, a film by Lithuanian director Emilis Vėlyvis, has been nominated for Britain's National Film Awards.

The film has been nominated in the category of best drama, the crew said, adding that Redirected is among the most viewed films in Great Britain.

"When presenting Redirected to the audience in Great Britain, we could not foresee that the movie will draw applause and attention from professionals in the film industry. A nomination in international film awards is a big and significant sign of appreciation for the entire film crew," said Donatas Šimukauskas, one of the producers.

The awards ceremony will take place in London on 1 March.

Redirected, a black action comedy, was created by producer company Kino Kultas. After release in cinemas across Lithuania a year ago, it generated 1.58 million euros in income, becoming the all-time most profitable film in Lithuania.
