Updated: Film awards to put Malta in the spotlight

The European Film Awards 2012, to be presented at the Mediterrean Conference Centre on December 1, will put Malta in the spotlight with hundreds of people coming over for the prestigious event.

Speaking at the MCC this morning, Marion Döring, the Director of the European Film Academy and executive producer of the European Film Awards said that in 35 years, she had never been to such a beautiful location.

She said that some 1,000 people will be coming to Malta for the event, including about 250 journalists and 20 film crews.

The event will also be televised in more than 50 countries reaching millions of viewers.

“Malta has to be turned into a summit of European Cinema," she said, adding that many prestigious names in the industry, including winners of life time achievement awards, were expected to come although they could not be announced yet.

Finance Minister Tonio Fenech and Tourism Minister Mario de Marco spoke about the event and how it should put Malta even more in the spotlight.

European Film Academy and EFA Productions announced the titles of the 47 films on this year’s selection list, recommended for a nomination for the European Film Awards 2012. Among them is Carnage, by Roman Polanski.

With 31 European countries represented, the list of films illustrates the great diversity in European cinema. 

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 EFA Board Members and invited experts Pierre-Henri Deleau (France), Marit Kapla (Sweden), Stefan Kitanov (Bulgaria), Paz Lázaro (Spain), Derek Malcolm (UK), and Elma Tataragic (Bosnia & Herzegovina) has included further films. 

In the coming weeks, the 2,700 members of the European Film Academy will vote for the nominations in the different award categories. The nominations will then be announced on 3 November at the Seville European Film Festival in Spain.
