2 short EFA nominees on 6thZFF

As a part of our short film programme the 6th ZFF will feature two candidates for the prestigious European Film Academy award. These films are the Iceland creation ''2 birds'' directed by Rúnar Rúnarsson and the film “Frankie” by the Irish director Darren Thornton.

The film ''2 birds'' received awards on Dokufest in Prizren, Edinburgh and Milano festivals and was nominated for the Cannes Golden palm award in 2008, and it tells a story about one bright summer day when a teenager and a group of his friends become grown up people. Last year Rúnar Eyjólfur Rúnarsson reached great global success with his 20-minute Oscar candidate film “The Last Farm”, the music for which was written by Sigur Ros keyboard player. “2 birds” is the second part of the planned trilogy by the Iceland director talking about life taking turns. You can read more about the movie here.

The title hero of “Frankie”, Irish EFA candidate film directed by Darren Thornton, is a 15-year old teenager who wishes to become a father. This 12-minute film that is special in every way possible won the audience award in the short film category on Los Angeles FF in 2008, as well as the title of the best Irish short film on the Cork 2007 festival. You can see a part of “Frankie” on the official site.

The award ceremony of the 21st European Film Awards will be taking place on December 6th 2008 in Copenhagen, and until then you can check some of the candidates for that prestigious award on ZFF.
