The Zone Of Interest

The European Film Academy has revealed the nominees for the main categories of the European Film Awards which take place in Berlin on November 9.

The Academy has shortlisted five of the highest profile films to come out of Europe this year for its best European film category, with the directors of the five films also all nominated in the best European director category. The five films also dominate the acting and screenwriting categories.

Three of the best European film nominees world premiered at Cannes. Justine Triet’s Palme d’Or winner Anatomy Of A Fall has been nominated alongside Jonathan Glazer’s Holocaust drama The Zone of Interest, which won the Grand Prix and Fipresci prize at Cannes. Aki Kaurismäki’s gentle tragicomedy Fallen Leaves, which picked up Cannes jury prize and topped Screen’s jury grid at the festival, is also nominated.

They compete against two immigration dramas that launched at Venice: Agnieszka Holland’s Green Border, which won the special jury prize at the festival, and and Matteo Garrone’s Io Capitano, which earned Garrone the best director Silver Lion and the best new actor prize for the film’s leading actor Seydou Sarr.

German actress Sandra Huller is nominated twice in the best actress category for her performances in The Zone Of Interest and Anatomy Of A Fall.
