People's Choice Award

Every year, the EFA People’s Choice Award allows film fans across Europe to elect their favourite film. When the European Film Academy invites its members, Europe’s greatest film stars, directors, actors and actresses, to attend the European Film Awards, the People’s Choice Award sheds a spotlight on the people films are made for: the audience.

Winners in the past have included films like Pedro Almodóvar’s VOLVER, Roberto Benigni’s LA VITA E BELLA, Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s AMÉLIE, Fatih Akin’s HEAD-ON, Danny Boyle’s SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, and Pawel Pawlikowski's IDA. And in 2015, the EFA People's Choice Award went to MARSHLAND by Alberto Rodríguez.

From 1 September to 31 October, film fans have voted for their favourite film and one if them won a trip to attend the 29th European Film Awards on Saturday, 10 December 2016 in Wroclaw, European Capital of Culture 2016.

Ernst & Young, one of the leading global professional services firms, continues to act as Official Tabulator endorsing the voting procedures and confirming the winner.
