Irish Titles Selected for EFA 2017 Awards
22 Aug 2017 : Deirdre Hopkins
Three Irish films are confirmed for the long list (51) for the European Film Awards.

The European Film Academy and EFA Productions announced this morning the titles of the 51 films on this year’s EFA Feature Film Selection, the list of feature fiction films recommended for a nomination for the European Film Awards 2017! With 31 European countries represented, the list once again illustrates the great diversity in European cinema. 

A Date for Mad Mary and The Killing of a Sacred Deer (both Element titles) along with Return to Montauk, all Irish production or Irish co-productions are on the long list, along with Lady Macbeth, produced by Fodhla Cronin O'Reilly.

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 the EFA Board and invited experts Péter Bognár (Hungary), Dave Calhoun (UK), Giorgio Gosetti (Italy), Christophe Leparc (France), Jacob Neiendam (Denmark) and Alik Shpilyuk (Ukraine) has included further films. 

In the coming weeks, the over 3,000 members of the European Film Academy will vote for the nominations in the categories European Film, Director, Actor, Actress and Screenwriter. The nominations will then be announced on 4 November at the Seville European Film Festival in Spain. A seven-member jury will decide on the awards recipients in the categories European Cinematographer, Editor, Production Designer, Costume Designer, Hair & Make-up Artist, Composer and Sound Designer.

The 30th European Film Awards with the presentation of the winners will take place on 9 December in Berlin.
