Raúl de la Fuente, Damian Nenow) led with FIVE nominations, Captain Morten and the Spider Queen (dir. Kaspar Jancis) received TWO of them. With great interest, we are watching the record number of EIGHTEEN nominees coming from the Central and Eastern Europe – with high potential to win in several categories. In comparison to 2017, only two short films found a way to the nominations: Category Best Student Film – Oh Mother! (dir., Paulina Ziolkowska; Poland) and in Best Background & Character Design Manivald (dir. Chintis Lundgren; Estonia, Croatia, Canada).
