EAVE project GLORY B wins the TFL Production Award and the Green Filming Award

Awards November 2022


This year’s EURIMAGES CO-PRODUCTION AWARD goes to all producers of Ukraine. The European Film Academy emphasizes the quality of Ukrainian productions and especially names films by EAVE graduates as examples, such as:

  • REFLECTION by Valentyn Vasyanovych, producer: EAVE graduate Vladimir Yatsenko
  • PAMFIR by Dmytro Sukholytkyy-Sobchuk, producers: EAVE MW graduate Aleksandra Kostina, co-producer: PUENTES and EAVE+ graduate Giancarlo Nasi, EAVE graduate Artem Koliubaiev, EAVE MW and FFF graduate Adolf El Assal
  • A HOUSE MADE OF SPLINTERS by Simon Lereng Wilmont, producer: EAVE graduate Monica Hellström and
  • 107 MOTHERS by Peter Kerekes, co-producer: EAVE graduate Jiri Konecny

The Academy continues: „Exceptionally, this year’s EURIMAGES CO-PRODUCTION AWARD is given to not one, but all producers of Ukraine, as an expression of strong appreciation for the growing quality of Ukrainian production in the past years, and as a sign of ongoing support now that the infrastructure for production support within Ukraine has collapsed. In 2022, Eurimages and the European Film Academy wish to express their full support to Ukrainian film producers and for efforts to give continuity to the film industry in these difficult times. The Award will be accepted by a delegation of Ukrainian producers who are Academy members at the ceremony of the 35th European Film Awards on 10 December in Reykjavík.
