At the Seville European Film Festival, the European Film Academy and EFA Productions proudly announced the nominations for the 31st European Film Awards. The more than 3,500 EFA Members will now vote for the winners who will be presented during the awards ceremony on 15 December in Seville.

Cold War, loosely inspired by Pawlikowski’s parents’ lives, is an achingly beautiful romantic tragedy of a jazz-loving pianist and a young, nonchalant and fearless girl in the backdrop of the 1950s Cold War in Poland. Winner of the Cannes Best Director Award, Cold War dominates the European Film Awards with 5 nominations. Cold War is followed closely by Matteo Garrone’s “Dogman,” Alice Rohrwacher’s “Happy as Lazzaro,” and Ali Abbasi’s “Border,” with four nominations each.
