European Film Awards discloses first 2020 selection

The first 32 features up for the 2020 European Films Awards has been announced with a second wave of “pandemic year” titles due to be revealed in September.

The titles include Armando Iannucci’s The Personal History Of David Copperfield and Viggo Mortensen’s Falling as well as Berlinale award-winners Undine, by Christian Petzold; Hidden Away, by Giorgio Diritti; Bad Tales, by the D’Innocenzo Brothers; Dau. Natasha, by Ilya Khrzhanovskiy and Jekaterina Oertel; and Delete History, by Benoît Delépine and Gustave Kervern.

 

The European Film Academy has split the announcement in two for the first time to account for the Covid-19 outbreak, which saw cinemas closed around the world and the release of films postponed or pivoted online.

 

As previously announced, films that premiered online as a result of the coronavirus pandemic will be eligible for the EFAs for the first time. This will allow the inclusion of films that would have premiered by May 31 – at a festival or cinema – but could not due to the virus crisis, provided they will premiere theatrically or online before the end of November.

 

Together, both parts will form the EFA Feature Film Selection, which are recommended for a nomination for the 33rd European Films Awards, due to take place on December 12 in Reykavik, Iceland.

 

The nominations will be announced on November 7 at the Seville European Film Festival. An eight-member jury will decide on the award recipients for European cinematography, editing, production design, costume design, make-up and hair, original score, sound, and visual effects.
