By October 21, 2020 No Comments

We are delighted and proud to inform you that ANOTHER ROUND has been shortlisted as one of the three Danish entries for the Best International Feature Film category at the 93rd Academy Awards®.

The Danish Oscar Commitee will announce the official Danish Oscar candidate on 18 November 2020, and the final nominations for the 93rd Academy Awards will be announced on 13 March 2021. The ceremony will take place on 25 April 2021 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

ANOTHER ROUND has been off to a skyrocketing start already. The drama received the official selection label at Cannes Film Festival 2020 as well as Toronto International Film Festival 2020, where the film had its international premiere and was highly praised among buyers and media. In addition, the leading cast of the film recently won the Silver Shell for ‘Best Actor’ at the 68th San Sebastian Film Festival, and yesterday, the film received the LFF Virtual Audience Award for ‘Best Film’ at the BFI London Film Festival 2020.

ANOTHER ROUND has not only been praised among media, buyers and festivals. The drama has had an overwhelming number of admissions since its local release on 24 September 2020 – with currently more than 500,000 admissions sold in Denmark despite current covid-19 restrictions.

With this new drama, Vinterberg has re-united a major part of his team from the heartrending drama THE HUNT (2012), which took the world audience by storm and was nominated for a Golden Globe® and an Academy Award® and screened In Competition in Cannes.

Vinterberg’s reunion includes fellow Academy Award®-nominee and co-screenwriter Tobias Lindholm as well as internationally acclaimed actors Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Bo Larsen, Lars Ranthe and Magnus Millang, who previously starred in Vinterberg’s dramas THE COMMUNE (2016) and THE COMMAND (2018).
