The European Film Academy (EFA) and the Festival del film Locarno
congratulate the

Locarno Short Film Nominee for the European Film Awards 2011
OPOWIESCI Z CHLODNI (FROZEN STORIES)
by Grzegorz Jaroszuk
Poland 2011, 26 min., fiction

In a grotesque way, the film shows the deep loneliness of two outsiders and their attempt to escape from their previous lives. As the jury stated: “Great tone, a strong scenario and an impressive performance of the main characters are the points of strength of this impressive short.”

The film is now nominated for the award European Film Academy Short Film 2011. It was selected by the festivals’s Pardi di domani jury consisting of jury president Indu Shrikent, festival director and film critic (India), Bakur Bakuradze, filmmaker (Georgia / Russia), Tom Shoval, filmmaker and critic (Israel), Luc Toutounghi, producer (Switzerland), and Rebecca Zlotowski, filmmaker (France).

The short film initiative is organised by the European Film Academy in co-operation with a series of film festivals throughout Europe. At each of these festivals, an independent jury presents one of the European short films in competition with a nomination in the short film category of the European Film Awards.

The next nomination will be presented in co-operation with the Venice International Film Festival.

When the annual cycle is completed in September, the nominees will be presented to the over 2,400 members of the European Film Academy and it is they who will elect the overall winner: the European Film Academy Short Film 2011 which will be presented at the 24th European Film Awards Ceremony on 3 December in Berlin.
