The European Film Awards are presented annually since 1988 by the European Film Academy to recognize excellence in European cinematic achievements. The awards are given in over ten categories of which the most important is the Film of the year. They are restricted to European cinema and European producers, directors, and actors.

The awards were officially also called the Felix Awards until 1997, in reference to the award's trophy statuette.

The host cities alternate, as Berlin hosts them every other year while other European cities get the chance in between.
