EUROPEAN FILM AWARDS 2005 – WINNERS

HANEKE’S HIDDEN HAUL
Michael Haneke has triumphed at this year’s European Film Awards (Berlin, Dec. 3), his film Caché (Hidden) winning awards for Best Film, Best Director and the FIPRESCI (international critics) prize, while the star of the film, Daniel Auteuil won Best Actor; the film’s editors also won their category.


Caché (Hidden), which had its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, is, according to FIPRESCI, “the best and most courageous European film of 2005: a merciless portrayal of bourgeoisie, that in a visionary way anticipates the events in the Parisian banlieu of late.”

Sir Sean Connery and Maurice Jarre were also honoured with special awards, while the Jameson sponsored People’s Choice awards came up with perhaps the only surprise of the event with Orlando Bloom’s Best European Actor Award for The Kingdom of Heaven.

The European Film Academy, now with some 1600 members working in film across Europe, was founded in 1989 as the European Cinema Society by its first president Ingmar Bergman and 40 filmmakers to advance the interests of the European film industry. Wim Wenders was elected first chairman of the association which two years later was renamed European Film Academy. In 1996, he followed Ingmar Bergman as president of the EFA while British producer Nik Powell was elected as chairman.

Current board members include Deputy Chairman Dieter Kosslick, Director of the Berlin International Film Festival, UK actress Brenda Blethyn, Hungarian director Istvan Szabo, and Italian producer Domenico Procacci, who has film business interests in Australia.
