#EFA2017 People's Choice Awards

Every year, the EFA People’s Choice Award allows film fans across Europe to elect their favourite film. When the European Film Academy invites its members, Europe’s greatest film stars, directors, actors and actresses, to attend the European Film Awards, the People’s Choice Award sheds a spotlight on the people films are made for: the audience. This year’s vote has started – vote now and win the chance to join winners and nominees for the awards ceremony in Berlin!

Film fans can cast their vote on the official site HERE and win a trip to the 30th European Film Awards in Berlin.

Strongly suggest you vote and bet you'll have as much trouble as me as there are more than three films that absolutely deserve to win and choosing among them is difficult.  Alright my decision goes between Kaurismäki, Mungiu and Ozon but also believe Vinterberg and Schrader have to be considered.  Sigh.

These are the nine nominated films. 

A Monster Calls, J.A. Bayona, Spain
Bacalaureat (Graduation), Cristian Mungiu, Romania, France and Belgium
Bridget Jones's Baby, Sharon Maguire, UK, Ireland, France and USA
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, David Yates, UK and USA
Frantz, François Ozon, France
Kollektivet (The Commune), Thomas Vinterberg, Denmark, Sweden and Netherlands
La Pazza Gioia (Like Crazy), Paolo Virzì, Italy and France
Toivon Tuolla Puolen (The Other Side of Hope), Aki Kaurismäki, Finland and Germany
Vor der Morgenröte (Stefan Zweig - Farewell to Europe),  Maria Schrader, Germany, Austria and France

The winner will be announced on the stage during the European Film Awards ceremony on December 9, 2017 in Berlin.
