The Info List - European Film Awards



--- Advertisement ---


The EUROPEAN FILM AWARDS have been presented annually since 1988 by the European Film Academy to recognize excellence in European cinematic achievements. The awards are given in over ten categories, of which the most important is the Best Film. They are restricted to European cinema and European producers, directors, and actors.

The awards were officially also called the "FELIX AWARDS" until 1997, in reference to the former award's trophy statuette, which was replaced by a feminine statuette.

The host cities alternate, as Berlin hosts them every other year while other European cities get the chance in between.

AWARDING PROCEDURES

Feature films participating in the European Film Awards must be European feature-length fiction films intended for normal theatrical release which must have had their first official screening (be it at a festival or at a regular cinema) after 1 July of the year before. Based on a selection of approximately 40 films recommended for a nomination, the members of the European Film Academy vote for the nominations in the main categories, which are announced in early November at the Seville European Film Festival. Based on the nominations, the members of the European Film Academy then vote for the winners which are announced at the European Film Awards Ceremony in early December.

ELIGIBILITY

The criteria whereby a film qualifies as European are based upon the European Convention on Cinematographic Co-production, Appendix II, issued by the Council of Europe . This definition might be extended for Israeli and Palestinian works and nationalities.

A cinematographic work qualifies as European if it achieves at least 15 points.
