A total of 47 films have been announced on the selection list for the 25th European Film Awards, to take place in Malta on December 1.

The titles include Joachim Lafosse’s Our Children, Michael Haneke’s Palme D’Or-winning Amour, The Angels’ Share from Britain’s Ken Loach, Roman Polanski’s Carnage, Cristian Mungiu’s Beyond The Hills, Faust, by Alexander Sokurov, Thomas Vinterberg’s The Hunt  and the box office smash Untouchable from France’s Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano. 

Steve McQueen’s Shame and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, directed by Tomas Alfredson, also feature on the selection.

The European Film Academy and EFA Productions have released the list, which represents 31 countries across the continent. A selection committee comprising EFA board members and invited industry experts were responsible for the selection, although the 20 countries with the most EFA members voted for one national film directly.

The industry experts were: Pierre-Henri Deleau from France, Marit Kapla (Sweden), Stefan Kitanov (Bulgaria), Paz Lázaro (Spain), Derek Malcolm (UK), and Elma Tataragic (Bosnia & Herzegovina)

The titles will now go to the 2,700 members of the European Film Academy, and the nominations for this year’s EFAs will be announced on November 3 at the Seville European Film Festival.
