The European Films Awards haul for Anatomy Of A Fall will likely ramp up growing Academy Awards buzz around the film and its star Sandra Hüller.

“I can’t say whether it will happen or not but yes… now we are in the race and we will continue the campaign in the U.S. and we’re totally involved, let’s see,” Triet said in an press conference after the ceremony.

Triet was also quizzed about the fact the film had not been selected for by France at its entry for the Best International Film.

“I think now we are so happy because fortunately the movie’s really worked. It’s overcome all these things… You know don’t do films for this… the film no longer belongs to me,” she said.

The body’s 4,600 members – hailing from “geographical Europe” as well as Israel, Palestine and Russia, – voted on an official Academy Selection made up of 40 films selected by the European Academy Board and a group of experts.

Awards for the craft categories were decided by an expert jury and announced ahead of tonight’s ceremony.

In other awards, UK director Molly Manning Walker’s coming-of-age film How To Have Sex, exploring the theme of sexual consent through a group of girls who go on a clubbing holiday in Greece, won the European Discovery award for best first film.

Korean-Lithuanian producer Uljana Kim, whose recent credits include Sergei Loznitsa’s The Natural History Destruction, received the Eurimage International Co-Production Award “to mark her outstanding commitment to co-production”.

In honorary awards, Spanish director Isabel Coixet was presented with the European Achievement in World Cinema Award; Hungarian filmmaker Béla Tarr was feted with the Honorary Award Of The President and The Board and Vanessa Redgrave was celebrated with the European Lifetime Achievement award.

This year’s European Film Awards ceremony unfolded against the backdrop of the second year of the Ukraine War as well as the Israel-Hamas conflict, the reverberations of which are being felt in Europe.

The event opened with a message of unity from the European Academy President Agnieszka Holland, Chair Mike Downey and CEO Matthijs Wouter Knol.

“We have Ukrainian, Russian, Israeli and Palestinian members… We want this to be a space to talk, to listen, to understand,” they said in a joint statement.
