Happy as Lazzaro by Alice Rohrwacher

The European Film Academy and EFA Productions have announced the titles of the 49 films on this year's EFA Feature Film Selection, the list of feature-length fiction films recommended for a nomination for the 2018 European Film Awards. With 35 European countries represented, the list once again illustrates the great diversity present in European cinema.

In the 20 countries with the most EFA members, these members have voted one national film directly into the selection list. To complete the list, a Selection Committee consisting of the EFA board and invited experts Giorgio Gosetti (Italy), Elise Jalladeau (Greece), Christophe Leparc (France), Jacob Neiendam (Denmark), Edvinas Pukšta (Lithuania) and Alik Shpilyuk (Ukraine) has included further films.

In the coming weeks, the over 3,500 members of the European Film Academy will vote for the nominations in the categories of European Film, Director, Actor, Actress and Screenwriter. The nominations will then be announced on 10 November at the Seville European Film Festival in Spain. An eight-member jury will decide on the awards recipients in the categories of European Cinematographer, Editor, Production Designer, Costume Designer, Hair and Make-up Artist, Composer, Sound Designer and - for the first time - Visual Effects Supervisor.

The 31st European Film Awards, with the presentation of the winners, will take place on 15 December in Seville.
