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 Seville!

Winners in the past have included films like AMÉLIE, HASTA LA VISTA, IDA, SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE and THE KING’S SPEECH. In 2017, the EFA People's Choice Award went to STEFAN ZWEIG - FAREWELL TO EUROPE by Maria Schrader.
