FIVE FILMS NOMINATED FOR EUFA 2019

 

Based on the lists of 46 feature films and 12 documentaries from the European Film Award Selections 2019 a committee consisting of Carlo Cresto-Dina (producer / Italy); Joanna Szymanska (producer / Poland) and Dagmar Brunow (Film scholar / Sweden) has decided to nominate Five Films for the EUFA 2019.

The nominated films will be viewed and discussed in 25 universities in 25 countries and each institution will select its favourite film. In early December, one student representative from each university will attend a three-day deliberation meeting to decide on the overall winner. The winner will then be announced on 5th December and the presentation will take place on 6th December, on the eve of the 32nd European Film Awards in Berlin. These are the nominated films:
