We embark on an expedition through the international festivalscape and take a look at jury and audience favorites: which films received accolades and qualified for the main award shows in the past few months? Which films premiered at the big festivals and have then been successful in the festival circuit? If you want to know the answers to these questions, you will be delighted to watch our two Best Of The Fests-programs, studded with this season’s festival gems.

The European Film Award Candidates, on the other hand, are regarded as a successful cultural export provided by the European Film Academy: the films qualifying for the European Film Awards tour annually through the festivals of the world and give an overview of what the continent has to offer cinematically. As a qualifying festival for the European Film Awards, we are delighted to present this package each year in cooperation with the Academy.
