23rd European Film Awards – EFA Discovery Award Nominations

The European Academy announced the nominations for this year Discovery-Prix FIPRESCI award and here are the five (5) films by young and upcoming directors of their first full-length feature film.

La Doppia Ora (The Double Hour), Giuseppe Capotondi, Italy
Eu Cand Vreau Sa Fluier, Fluier (If I Want to Whistle, I Whistle), Florin Serban, Romania
Die Fremde (When we Leave), Feo Aladag, Germany
Lebanon, Samuel Maoz, Israel, Germany and France
Nothing Personal, Urszula Antoniak, Netherlands and Ireland

Have seen three films and just from those I could have a very hard time deciding which is the best as the three are very different but all are excellent; still think that Die Fremde has to win the award and hope the majority of the 2,300 members of the European Film Academy vote for Aladag’s film. Winner will be announced at the awards ceremony on December 4th in Tallinn/Estonia.
