European Film Awards winners 2011

EuropeanFilmAward.jpgThe European Film Awards were also announced at the weekend, revealing a few wins for Britain and a The King's Speech in particular. There are some great films from across all of Europe here, and if you haven't seen any of them this is a good list with which to start your viewing.

There are a few surprises in here too, and I'm glad to see Stephen Frears and Terry Gilliam making an appearance in the winners, and Melancholia, The Artist, Tilda Swinton and Mads Mikkelsen are also honoured.
