The nominated films will soon be submitted to the more than 3,800 EFA Members to elect the winner. The European Animated Feature Film 2020 will then be presented at the virtual 33rd European Film Awards Ceremony.

The 33rd European Film Awards will take place as a virtual ceremony without an audience, broadcast and streamed from the European Film Academy’s seat, Berlin, on Saturday, 12 December 2020. With deep regret but in full and mutual agreement, the European Film Academy (EFA), the Mayor of Reykjavik and the Icelandic Minister of Education, Science and Culture, decided to cancel the event in the Icelandic capital in December 2020, and are happy to announce that instead the 35th European Film Awards Ceremony will be presented in Reykjavik in December 2022. Following their usual rhythm, the 34th EFAs will take place in Berlin in 2021.

The decision acknowledges the deteriorating situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic in an increasing number of European countries, and in Iceland. The pandemic will affect all events usually taking place during the EFA Weekend. The European Film Academy and its in-house company EFA Productions are currently working on a new concept for an EFA Week of additional online-events to involve its partners and members, including the annual General Assembly.

The awarding procedures will remain the same, i.e. most awards are voted for directly by the over 3,800 EFA Members. Due to the pandemic, the nominations will also be announced online, on Tuesday, 10 November, in a livestream presented together with EFA’s longtime partners at the Seville European FiLm Festival in Spain.

Hear his plan for putting the planet back on the path of sustainability over the next 10 years — and protecting the future of our children.

This talk was part of the Countdown Global Launch on 10.10.2020. (Watch the full event here: Countdown is TED’s global initiative to accelerate solutions to the climate crisis.
