    In recognition of a unique contribution to the world of film the European Film Academy takes great pleasure in presenting Steve McQueen with the honorary award EUROPEAN ACHIEVEMENT IN WORLD CINEMA
     
    British video artist Steve McQueen began making short-subject works, almost exclusively silent and black-and-white. They included the short BEAR (1993), which depicts a brief and unusual encounter between two naked men; the 1997 DEADPAN, in which a gentleman stands in the middle of a building as it repeatedly collapses around him; and DRUMROLL (1998), for which McQueen affixed cameras to a barrel and rolled the barrel through the streets of Manhattan.

    In 2008, Steve McQueen got immediate international recognition with HUNGER, his debut feature. Starring Michael Fassbender, it dramatises the last painful months of IRA activist Bobby Sands in Belfast’s Maze Prison. The film won the Golden Camera and FIPRESCI Award in Cannes and continued winning over 40 awards world-wide, among them a BAFTA, six Irish IFTAs and the EFA’s European Discovery of the Year. 
     
    His second feature, SHAME, again with Michael Fassbender in the lead, offers a compelling and timely examination of the nature of need, how we live our lives and the experiences that shape us. The film won the Young Cinema Award, FIPRESCI Prize and Volpi Cup for Michael Fassbender in Venice 2011 and again continued winning more than 40 international awards, among them two European Film Awards (cinematography & editing). 
     
    Steve McQueen’s third feature 12 YEARS A SLAVE went on an impressive international festival tour, was released in 48 countries and won more than 200 awards, among them an Oscar for Best Motion Picture of the Year, a BAFTA and two IFTAs.

    In recognition of a unique and dedicated contribution to the world of film, the European Film Academy takes great pleasure in presenting Agnès Varda with the LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD for her outstanding body of work.

    As a writer and director, Agnès Varda continues to be an important voice in French and European cinema as well as in the world of art. Her first film, LA POINTE COURTE (1954), was hardly shown but it already gave a glimpse of her very personal style and earned her the title of «grandmother of the French New Wave». Her film CLEO FROM 5 TO 7 (Cléo de 5 à 7, 1961) was selected at Cannes Festival and won the French Critics’ Award. 

    Among her many films are LIONS LOVE (… and LIES) (1968), DOCUMENTEUR (1981), shot in Los Angeles, ONE SINGS THE OTHER DOESN’T (L’une chante, l’autre pas, 1976), JACQUOT (de NANTES) (1990)… All her films often combine the fictional with the documentary.

    She has won virtually every award there is, among them a Silver Bear in Berlin for HAPPINESS (Le Bonheur, 1965), a Golden Lion in Venice for VAGABOND (Sans toit ni loi, 1985), a European Film Award for THE GLEANERS AND I (Les Glaneurs et la glaneuse, 2000), and a French César for THE BEACHES OF AGNÈS (Les Plages d’Agnès, 2008).

    Her work has been honoured with a Carosse d’Or at the Cannes Festival, an honorary César and a Pardo d’onore in Locarno.

    Agnès Varda has created more than 30 short, documentary and fiction films for both TV and cinema, and exhibitions of photographs and art installations: PATATUTOPIA, created at the Venice Art Biennale 2003, THE WIDOWS OF NOIRMOUTIER in a big exhibition at La Fondation Cartier in Paris (2006), A SHACK OF CINEMA shown at LACMA in Los Angeles (2013) and a solo exhibition, TRIPTYQUES ATYPIQUES at Obadia Gallery in Paris (2014)

    Me too!!! But I’m from Poland, so maybe I’m not entirely objective:)
    But on the other hand what strikes in those nominations is how much academy embraced Ida – nods for film, writing, directing, both actresses, award for cinematography. And everything absolutely deserving! Other foreign language contenders also got some nominations, but based on nomiantions looks like Ida is the most likely to win.

    Also surprised me how brothers Dardenne and Mike Leigh underperformed (no nominations for best film or director!).

    ^^ I’m from Poland too. It’s still a little bit too early to be certain but “Ida” has bigger shot in that category than any other Polish film before it or at least since “Knife in the Water”.

    “Leviathan” is easily the biggest other title to come out of these nods. Good showing for “Winter Sleep” and “Force Majeure” too, although no acting nominations for either of them.

    On the other hand, I never thought 2 years ago when “The Dark Knight Returns” premiered that Tom Hardy will have such a career. He’s a major talent.

    BUMP, next week! Go “Ida”. I truly hope Agata Kulesza will win award for Best Actress. In a competition with Marion Cotillard and Charlotte Gainsbourg it would be even more stellar achievement. 

    Trivia: Kulesza won 8th edition of Polish “Dancing with the Stars”.

    If this movie doesn’t win European Discovery, I don’t know what to think of them anymore.

    It’s brilliance in front of us. We shall not forget it and it must win.

    It was Spanish Pre-Selection for Foreign Language Film.
