Hot from Europe nominees for EFA

The selection list for the European Film Awards 2008 has been announced and includes 44 titles. Once again, with 27 countries represented this year, the selection vividly 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 (marked with a *). To complete the list, a Selection Committee consisting of EFA Board Members and invited experts Gunnar Bergdahl (Sweden), Stefan Kitanov (Bulgaria), and Derek Malcolm (UK) has included further films.

The boxes with the Selection DVDs and the voting papers will be dispatched ASAP and we will inform you by separate e-mail when the shipment begins. You will find material on the individual films on our website at
