Furthermore, two former SHOOTING STARS were nominated as “European Actor 2010″: Elio Germano, Italian SHOOTING STAR 2008, for Our Life by Daniele Luchetti and Jakob Cedergren, Danish SHOOTING STAR 2005, for Submarino by Thomas Vinterberg.
The nominations were announced by the European Film Academy and EFA Productions at the Seville European Film Festival at the weekend.

Tallinn’s Black Nights Film Festival will also host EFP’s presentation of six of the ten SHOOTING STARS from 2010 with their films as part of the Shooting Stars Touring Programme.
The SHOOTING STARS 2011, who are nominated by the EFP member organisations and selected by an international jury, will be presented at the next Berlin International Film Festival. European Film Promotion’s SHOOTING STARS programme is financially supported by the EU’s MEDIA Programme.
