‘Another Round’

The nominations for the 2020 European Film Awards have been unveiled, with the size of two key categories extended as a result of the virus crisis.

The categories for best feature and best documentary have each been increased from five to six to offer more exposure to titles and artists impacted by cinema closures and release delays during the pandemic.

The films nominated in the best European Film category are Thomas Vinterberg’s Another Round, Berhan Qurbani’s Berlin Alexanderplatz, Jan Komasa’s Corpus Christi, Pietro Marcello’s Martin Eden, Vaclav Marhoul’s The Painted Bird and Christian Petzold’s Undine.

Nominees in the European Documentary category comprise Radu Ciorniciuc’s Acasa, My Home, Alexander Nanau’s Collective, Victor Kossakovsky’s Gunda, Sébastien Lifshitz’s Little Girl, Susanne Regina Meures’s Saudi Runaway and Feras Fayyad’s The Cave.

Komasa, Marcello and Vinterberg are also nominated for best director alongside Agnieszka Holland for Charlatan, François Ozon for Summer Of 85 and Maria Sødahl for Hope.

Another Round, Corpus Christi and Martin Eden jointly lead the nominations, with four nods each.

Mike Downey, chairman of the EFA board, said: “In order to widen the platform to more European films in what is such a difficult time for European cinema and artists, the EFA Board has decided to exceptionally increase the nominations in the full length feature film categories and in the documentary category from five to six.”

Nominees in the animation, comedy and discovery categories were previously announced.

More than 3,800 EFA members will now vote for the winners who will be presented in a series of virtual events from December 8-12.
