European Film Academy Award nominees

THE EUROPEAN FILM AWARDS 2009: THE SELECTION -

It is with great pleasure that the European Film Academy and EFA Productions gGmbH announce the titles of the 48 films on this year's selection list, the list of films recommended for a nomination for the European Film Awards 2009! With 25 countries represented, the list once again illustrates the great diversity in European cinema.

In the 20 countries with the most EFA Members, these members have voted one national film directly into the selection list. To complete the list, a Selection Committee consisting of EFA Board Members and invited experts Gunnar Bergdahl (Sweden), Stefan Kitanov (Bulgaria), Derek Malcolm (UK), and Nikolaj Nikitin (Germany) has included further films.

In the coming weeks, the 2,000 members of the European Film Academy will vote for the nominations in the different award categories. The nominations will then be announced on 7 November at the Sevilla European Film Festival in Spain.

The 22nd European Film Awards with the presentation of the winners will take place in Germany's Ruhr Metropolis on 12 December.

Berlin, 7 September 2009
