The 23rd European Film Awards: Guests and Presenters
When the doors at the Nokia Concert Hall in snowy Tallinn open for the 23rd European Film Awards this evening (Saturday, 4 December) winners, nominees and EFA Members – altogether 1,400 guests - will be welcomed by German comedy star Anke Engelke and Estonian actor Märt Avandi who will lead us through the evening as the show’s hosts.
There will be an impressive line-up of European actors and actresses presenting the individual awards, among them EFA Ambassador Maria de Medeiros (Portugal), Jean-Marc Barr (France), Hannelore Elsner (Germany), Nikolaj Lie Kaas (Denmark), Miki Manojlović (Serbia), Amanda Ooms (Sweden) and – adding a bit of a local flavour to the event – Lembit and Juhan Ulfsack from Estonia. With them on stage will be some of the actors and actresses from the European Film Promotion’s 'Shooting Stars' programme: Agata Buzek (Poland), Kryštof Hádek (Czech Republic), Edward Hogg (UK), Michele Riondino (Italy), and Pihla Viitala (Finland), all of them Shooting Stars 2010, and Alba Rohrwacher from Italy (Shooting Star 2009).
The list of presenters is completed by Russian director Victor Kossakowsky, Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth Commissioner Androulla Vassiliou and EFA President Wim Wenders.
Among the guests this year will be Zeynep Özbatur Atakan (European Co-production Award – Prix EURIMAGES), the recipients of the honorary awards Bruno Ganz and Gabriel Yared, and some special surprise guests.
