The Frozen Globe Awards
The Frozen Globe Awards is an annual film awards ceremony founded in 2004 and held in Helsinki, Finland. The name of the ceremony reflects the climatic conditions of Finland, which is known for its long and cold winters.
The Frozen Globe Awards are one of the most prestigious film awards in Northern Europe and the awards ceremony attracts many famous Hollywood stars as well as local actors and directors.
Like most film awards, the Frozen Globe Awards include several categories such as Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Actress. In addition, the ceremony also presents awards for best screenplay, best cinematography, best music and best documentary.
The Frozen Globe Awards are also distinguished by the fact that they recognize creative achievement in animation and short films. Categories for these genres include "Best Short Film" and "Best Animated Film".
One of the most notable moments in the history of the Frozen Globe Awards was in 2006 when the Finnish film The Exorcist (Sauna) won the Best Film award and was recognized as one of the most original films produced in Finland.
The Frozen Globe Awards continues to attract more and more attention in the film world and is increasingly recognized as a highly professional awards ceremony that celebrates talented actors and directors not only from Finland but from all over the world.
Category Changes This year we will be adding several new categories to the awards including one for Corporate Social Responsibility. Other suggestions welcomed.
