The European Film Awards will present candidates for short and animated feature films of 2023.

The European Film Academy has announced candidates for this year's European short and Animated feature film division.

This is the 5th consecutive year in which Efa has nominated 3 animation features. It was a record for 2021, but it feels like it's going to be taken for granted in the future. It's easy to see why you need 5 slots in the Academy. This year's race feels incredibly close, and Europe has consistently produced high-quality films that deserve recognition.

For Sebastian Rodenbach and Chiara Maltese chicken Linda. Won the Best Feature Award at Annecy this year and is probably a favorite to win. Pablo Berger's robot dream has won the Annecy Contre Champ Award and captivated critics on the continent. Amazing Maurice has the most mainstream star power of this year's nominees and is based on Terry Pratchett's Discworld series popular entry. The white plastic sky has an unforgettable appearance and a contemporary story that can impress voters. And the girl Greyhound screened at the Generation Kplus section of Berlinale earlier this year.

Flóraanna Buda's 27 is the only animated title among this year's European short film nominations. In this category, 3 animated short stories were featured last year. Despite standing alone, 27 have an excellent chance to beat all live action competitions for this year's Palme d'Or for short films at this year's Cannes and take this year's prize. Another of the candidates for this year's EFA short film features an animation from the video game Red Dead Redeemption2, which hardly works, but the footage is animated by them.

The candidates are from the European Film Academy and Cartoon, the European Animated Film Association, which hosts major events such as cartoon forums, cartoon films and cartoon springboards. Selected by representatives of the European Short Film Category is organized by the European Film Academy in cooperation with film festivals across Europe.

The 2023 European Film Awards will be held in Berlin on 12/9.
