Song Of The Sea isn't done with attracting award nominations just yet. After numerous nods and several victories Tomm Moore's latest opus can now add a European Film Award nomination to that impressive list. The 28th European Film Awards will take place in Berlin on December 12th, and are designed to recognise excellence in film across the continent. The nominations were announced on October 13th. The nominations were selected by a committee made up of members of the European Film Academy and CARTOON- the European Association of Animated Film.
Song Of The Sea will compete in the Best Animated Feature Category against another AFA favourite, Aardman Animation's Shaun The Sheep Movie. The third and final nominee in the category you might not be quite so familiar with, however. Adama is a French made feature about a young African boy who travels across World War 1 era Europe in search of his lost brother. The film screened at this year's London Film Festival and is due to open in France later this month. No US screenings have been confirmed so far. Based on the trailer, it certainly looks like a very interesting film and quite different from it's fellow nominees. Check it out below.
Congratulations to all the nominees!
