Sony's Skyfall took home theatrical campaign of the year.
Picturehouse and Vue triumphed in the newly added exhibition categories.
The rising star prize was bestowed on Andy Green from Organic.
Alan North, who retired this summer from the Walt Disney Company and previously worked at Universal, Rank, and Odeon, was honoured with the Film Distributors' Association Lifetime Achievement Award. His former colleague Daniel Battsek flew in from New York to present North with the award.
Screen Editor Wendy Mitchell told the 500 assembled guests: "I'm thrilled that companies and films of all sizes and shapes are honoured tonight. Those can be the indie underdogs but also not overlooking how competitive the studio blockbusters are and how studios also have to keep improving and honing their work...Several judges remarked to me about the high quality of all the entries this year and that it was a shame not all of them could be given prizes. In some of the major categories it came down to just one vote. That's a testament to the great nominations we had this year."
