Grimstad Short Film Nominee for the European Film Awards 2009

by Iris Olsson (France/Russia/Finland 2008, 11', documentary)

The film is now nominated for the European Film Academy Short Film 2009 and was selected by the festival's international jury with the following statement:

"This film touches upon the intangible and the unspoken. It takes us on a journey between two physical points and in that process goes into the deeper recesses of one's hopes and fears. Through a few individual stories the film reveals a subtle interplay between fate and the subconscious. The atmosphere and composition envelope the viewer in another universe."

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 overall winner will be presented during the Awards Ceremony on 12 December in Germany's Ruhr Metropolis.
