The European Film Awards – over the years

European Film Academy unequivocally condemns war and joins Ukrainian Film Academy in boycott of Russian films
The European Film Academy has joined the massive global sanctions currently in effect against Russia and fully supports the call of the Ukrainian Film Academy to boycott Russian film as expressed: more

The Academy strongly condemns the war started by Russia – Ukraine’s sovereignty and territory must be respected. Putin’s actions are atrocious and totally unacceptable, and we strongly condemn them.

What concerns us most is the fate of the Ukrainians, and our hearts are with the Ukrainian filmmaking community. We are fully aware that several of our members are fighting with arms against the aggressor. The Academy will therefore exclude Russian films from this year’s European Film Awards and we lend our support to each element of the boycott.

The European Film Academy remains a place to support and unite all filmmakers who share our belief in human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, rule of law, and human rights. We acknowledge and appreciate those brave filmmakers in Russia who stand up against this war. But in view of a brutal and unjustified attack, we have to stand with our sisters and brothers in Ukraine whose lives are at risk.

Moscow International Film Festival
We are receiving a lot of requests from filmmakers, the long standing friends and partners of the Moscow International Film Festival from all over the world. They are asking to postpone the Festival’s dates, which in this year are planned for April. Considering the current situation, many of them are unable to visit Moscow, nor have they got a possibility to send their films (especially when such films exist on 35 mm or a hard drive only), and in certain cases – to receive their producers’ confirmation to submit their films to the Festival. Appreciating their concern we hereby announce that the dates of the Moscow International Film Festival are postponed until the second half of 2022. The exact dates will be announced later. We express our gratitude to all filmmakers who have already confirmed their participation in the Festival, and hope to see all of you in Moscow later this year, presenting you new works.
