Vote Opens for People's Choice Award

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 Wroclaw, European Capital of Culture 2016! 

Winners in the past have included films like Pedro Almodóvar’s VOLVER, Roberto Benigni’s LA VITA E BELLA, Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s AMÉLIE, Fatih Akin’s HEAD-ON, Paweł Pawlikowsk's IDA and Danny Boyle’s SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE. In 2015, the EFA People's Choice Award went to MARSHLAND by Alberto Rodríguez.

Film fans can cast their vote on the official website and win a trip to the 29th European Film Awards in Wroclaw/Poland!
