European Film Awards are awarded by the European Film Academy and the prizes are divided into 17 categories, the most important being the award for best film. The prices are exclusively awarded to films produced in Europe and to European producers, directors and actors.
The European Film Awards was originally called the Felix Awards, but has since changed its name. The award ceremony takes place alternately in Berlin and different European cities. In 2008 the award ceremony took place in Copenhagen.
Janus Billeskov Jansen and Anne Østerud won the prize for best editing in 2016, for their work on Thomas Vinterberg's 'The Commune', and Joshua Oppenheimer won the award for best documentary in 2013 for 'The Act of Killing'.
