Martin Zandvliet’s war drama Land of Mine has already received a leg-up in its foreign-language Oscar campaign, winning three European Film Awards (EFA) this week.
The European Film Academy named the winners of its technical categories, ahead of the EFA ceremony, which will be held Dec. 10 in Wroclaw, Poland.
Land of Mine, which follows the true story of German POWs forced after WWII to clear land mines covering the Danish coastline, won in three categories: best cinematography for Camilla Hjelm Knudsen, best costume design for Stefanie Bieker and best hair and makeup for Barbara Kreuzer. Land of Mine is Denmark’s submission for consideration in the foreign-language film Oscar category.
Suffragette, Sarah Gavron’s period drama about Britain’s early feminist movement starring Carey Mulligan, Anne-Marie Duff and Helena Bonham Carter, picked up a European Film Award for best production design for Alice Normington.
Anne Osterud and Janus Billeskov Jansen won best editing honors for Thomas Vinterberg’s The Commune, which is set in 1970s Stockholm.
The EFA for best music went to Ilya Demutsky for the score to Kirill Serebrennikov’s Russian drama The Student.
A seven-member expert jury — consisting of production designer Benoît Barouh, costume designer Paco Delgado, cinematographer Martin Gschlacht, sound designer Dean Humphreys, editor Era Lapid, makeup artist Waldemar Pokromski and composer Giuliano Taviani — picked the winners of the technical categories.
Irish actor Pierce Brosnan will receive the European Achievement in World Cinema Award at this year’s EFAs.
