Giuseppe Capotondi’s Italian thriller “The Double Hour.”

Also nominated are Florin Serban’s Romanian prison-set “If I Want to Whistle, I Whistle,” Samuel Maoz’s Israeli war drama “Lebanon” and “Nothing Personal,” Urszula Antoniak’s Dutch-Irish relationship piece, starring Lotte Verbeek and Stephen Rea.

This year’s noms were selected by a committee comprising EFA board members Els Vandevorst (the Netherlands) and Pierre-Henri Deleau (France) as well as Jacob Neiiendam, director of the CPH:PIX film fest in Copenhagen, Turkish film critic Alin Tasciyan and Mariola Wiktor of Poland’s Forum of European Cinema.
