POSITION AMONG THE STARS by Leonard Retel Helmrich (Scarabee Films) is one of the three European documentaries that are nominated for Best European Documentary and is in the running for the EUROPEAN FILM ACADEMY DOCUMENTARY 2011 – PRIX ARTE.

Helmrich’s film has been awarded at many film festivals worldwide. POSITION AMONG THE STARS premiered at last year’s IDFA where it won both the Award for Best Feature Length Documentary and the Award for Best Dutch Documentary, and at Sundance it received the World Cinema Special Jury Prize. POSITION AMONG THE STARS is also qualified for an Oscar.

The other two contenders for the European Film Award are the Dutch co-production VIVAN LAS ANTIPODAS by Victor Kossakovsky (NL Producer: Lemming Film), which was the second opening film in Venice this year, and the German documentary PINA.

The 24th edition of the European Film Awards ceremony takes place in Berlin on Saturday December 3: www.europeanfilmawards.eu
