The 30th European Film Awards: 9 December in Berlin

The 30th European Film Awards returned to the German capital, home of the European Film Academy.

Divided by the Wall for 28 years, the re-united city has quickly become a colourful and exciting international metropolis and home to creative people from around the world.

Venues for the reception and film gala on Friday night and the awards ceremony itself on Saturday are situated right in the western centre of Berlin, close to the broken shard of the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, famous boulevard Kurfürstendamm and legendary department store KaDeWe. From Zoo station you can also take a city tour, on a tour bus, public bus 100 or with an inner city train (S-Bahn) - all of which take you along some of the city’s main sights and straight to museum island, Alexanderplatz and tv tower.

The European Film Awards 2017 were presented by the European Film Academy and EFA Productions. Public supporters: Creative Europe MEDIA Sub-Programme of the EU, Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, FFA German Federal Film Board, Berlin Capital Cultural Fund, German State Lottery Berlin, and Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg. Private partners: Aveda, Deutsche Lufthansa AG, GLS, M∙A∙C, ŠKODA AUTO Deutschland, Sofitel Berlin Kurfürstendamm and STONE Brewing GmbH.
