The European Film Awards rounded out this year’s selection, adding 13 titles that won major awards at the Cannes and Venice festivals.
They include the body horror of Julia Ducournau Titanium, which won the Palme d’Or at Cannes, and Audrey Diwan’s abortion drama Event, who recently won the Golden Lion in Venice.

Other titles include Leos Carax Annette, which opened this year’s Cannes Film Festival and won the award for best director; Kira Kovalenko’s Russian drama Loosen fists, who won the Grand Prix in the Un Certain Regard box at Cannes; and that of Paolo Sorrentino God’s hand, who received the Silver Lion of Venice as the winner of the festival’s grand jury.
They join the 40 feature films announced in August, with the European Film Academy revealing the two-phase selection this year due to the pandemic and subsequent dates for several key European festivals. There is also a new VoD visualization platform for EFA members, which has been developed as part of an 18-month digital transformation program that will run through 2022.
In the coming weeks, more than 4,000 members of EFA will be able to view the 53 films selected and vote for the nominations in the categories European film, director, actor, actress and screenwriter.
The nominations will be unveiled on November 9 at the Seville European Film Festival in Spain. An eight-member jury will decide on the winners in the categories European cinematography, editing, production design, costume design, makeup and hairstyle, original music, sound and visual effects.
The 34th edition of the European Film Awards will take place on December 11 in Berlin.
