The European Film Academy has announced the six nominees for this year’s FIPRESCI Prize for European Discovery.
Atlantics, a France-Senegal-Belgium ghost tale from Mati Diop, the first black female director to premiere a film in competition at Cannes and also representing Senegal in the International Oscar category this year, was selected as well.
From Scandinavia come nominees Aniara, a Sweden-Denmark co-production from Pella Kagerman and Hugo Lilja, which adapts an epic science fiction poem, and Tuva Novotny’s single-take Blind Spot, a Norway-Denmark co-production. The final nominee is from Bulgaria: Nadejda Koseva’s drama Irina.
The more than 3,600 members of the European Filim Academy will vote for the winner of the Discovery Prize, which will be presented at the Dec. 7 ceremony in Berlin.
The opera primas were selected by a committee of six people representing the International Critics’ Federation, FIPRESCI.
