On the occasion of the 33rd European Film Awards on 12 December, the European Film Academy is introducing a new award category – the EFA Award for Innovative Storytelling. In its first edition, the award is presented to director Mark Cousins for WOMEN MAKE FILM: A NEW ROAD MOVIE THROUGH CINEMA.
With this award, the European Film Academy wishes to pay tribute to a ground-breaking documentary produced by Hopscotch Films, a 14-hour odyssey introducing the viewer to many amazing but often overlooked female auteurs of cinema.
Using almost a thousand film extracts from thirteen decades and six continents, Mark Cousins asks how films are made, shot and edited; how stories are shaped and how movies depict life, love, politics, humour and death, all through the compelling lens of some of the world’s greatest directors — all of them women.
