As Many as Seven Titles in ZFF’s Program Nominated for European Oscar

Great news a week ahead of the festival – as many as seven films we will be watching at the upcoming 14th ZFF have been nominated for the European Film Award, nicknamed the European Oscar.

Among the nominees are Julieta by Pedro Almodovar and Elle by Paul Verhoeven (The Great 5), Toni Erdmann by Maren Ade and My Life as a Courgette by Claude Barras (LUX Film Day).

Among the competition entries, the nominees are the short The Goodbye by Clara Roquet and the feature Dogs by Bogdan Mirica, as well as The Happiest Day in the Life if Olli Mäki, which will grace the official opening of the festival.

EFA (European Film Awards) have become in recent years particularly prestigious as the winning films also often win Oscars in the best foreign language film category, like Ida by Paweł Pawlikowski, The Great Beauty by Paolo Sorrentino and Love by Michael Haneke.
