EFA finalises short film nominees
Terry Gilliam’s The Wholly Family completes the line up of 15 short films which have been nominated for the European Film Awards.
The short film initiative is organised by the European Film Academy in co-operation with a series of film festivals throughout Europe. At each of these festivals, an independent jury presents one of the European short films in competition with a nomination in the short film category of the European Film Awards.
