THE EUROPEAN FILM AWARDS 2019 GO BERLIN - FOLLOWED BY REYKJAVIK IN 2020  
This year’s European Film Awards will take place in Berlin on 7 December 2019
The 33rd European Film Awards will be celebrated on December 12 2020 in Iceland

The European Film Awards will be held in the Icelandic capital in December 2020. The ceremony will take place in the Harpa Conference and Concert Hall, together with various side events in connection with European film production.

The European Film Awards (EFAs) were first presented in Berlin in 1988, in order to promote and support the European film industry. They are held every second year in Berlin and travel throughout Europe in the other years: London, Paris, Rome, Barcelona, Warsaw, Copenhagen, Tallinn, Malta, Riga, Wroclaw and, last year, Seville. Wherever they go, the EFAs attract many foreign visitors such as film professionals, EFA Members, nominees and winners, and international journalists.

Three Icelanders have received these prestigious awards: Composer Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson in 1991 for the music in the film CHILDREN OF NATURE by Fririk ór Fririksson, Björk Gumundsdóttir received two awards in 2000: European Actress and the People’s Choice Award in Lars von Trier’s DANCER IN THE DARK, the latter also went to Ingvar E. Sigursson in ANGELS OF THE UNIVERSE. Additionally, the European University Film Award 2017, chosen by film students from across Europe, went to Gumundur Arnar Gumundsson for HEARTSTONE.

Designed by Olafur Eliasson, Henning Larsen Architects and Batteri Architects, Harpa is one of Reykjavk‘s greatest and most distinguished landmarks. It is a cultural and social centre in the heart of the city and features stunning views of the surrounding mountains and the North Atlantic Ocean. It is expected that around 1,400 guests will attend the award ceremony, which will also be transmitted live both in Iceland and throughout Europe.
