At the European Film Awards ceremony, two awards are also to go to the "Nothing New in the West" team. In the opinion of a jury, the film adaptation of the literature is convincing both in terms of visual effects and the make-up image. This was announced by the European Film Academy in Berlin. The film awards are scheduled to be presented on December 10th in Reykjavík, Iceland.
In some categories, winners have already been published in advance. For example, the costume and production design of the drama "Belfast" are to be awarded. The award for best cinematography is to be presented for "The Quiet Girl" and the award for best editing for "Burning Days".
In the drama "Nothing New in the West" are the make-up artist Heike Merker and the effects team Frank Petzold, Viktor Müller and Markus Frank. Director Edward Berger's film is based on Erich Maria Remarque's novel about the First World War. The production should also be in the race for the Oscar for Germany.
