The People’s Choice Award

2018 Regulations:

The award goes to a feature-length European* film released outside the country of its origin between 1 June 2017 and 31 May 2018.

The EFA Board decides the nominations in this category based on audience acclaim in- and outside of the country of a film’s origin.

The winner is voted for by the cinema-loving public across Europe in a campaign lasting from 1 September to 31 October.

The voting procedure is set up and managed by the European Film Academy.

The results are tabulated by an independent auditor.

The award is presented at the EFA Ceremony.

* The criteria whereby a film qualifies as European are based upon the Council of Europe Convention on Cinemato­graphic Co-production (CETS No. 220). European, in the sense of the European Film Academy, means geographical Europe, both EU and non-EU, and shall include Israeli and Palestinian.
