NOMINATIONS Germany

Getting ready for the Lolas

After two months of deliberations, the Deutsche Filmakademie has finally announced its candidates for the upcoming German Film Awards, the Lolas.

The 15-member pre-selection jury has chosen 24 films, divided into three categories (fiction, documentary and children's films). The titles will compete for 12 prizes up for grabs.
