Nine ZFF films enter the race for an Oscar

15. March 2021

The nominees for this year's Academy Awards were announced on Monday (March 15). After each ZFF edition, we follow "our" films through the film awards season, in which the most important film prizes in the English-speaking world are awarded from November to February. It is not only for us that the Oscars are a highlight of the awards season. As many as nine ZFF films will enter the race with a total of 27 nominations. We are keeping our fingers crossed!
