Border Nominated For European Film Awards

Ali Abbasi’s supernatural love story Border (Gräns), which won Un Certain Regard at Cannes and is Sweden’s entry for the 91st Academy Awards, has picked up four nominations for the 31st European Film Awards with Best Film, Best Director, Best Actress, and Best Screenwriter.

There are also two nominations for Denmark’s Oscar Entry, The Guilty (Den Skyldige), in the categories of Best Actor and Best Screenwriter, while Sverrir Gudnason gets a nod for his starring role in Borg / McEnroe, and Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir competes for Best Actress with Woman At War.

However, Pawel Pawlikowski’s Cold War, which won Best Director at Cannes, provides fierce competition across all categories, and Lukas Dhont’s debut feature Girl, which won the Camera d’Or, is also a strong contender.

The 31st European Film Awards take place at the Teatro de la Maestranza in Seville on 15th December 2018.
