Danish filmmaker May el-Toukhy’s Sundance award-winner Queen Of Hearts has been chosen as Denmark’s entry to the best international film prize at the 2020 Academy Awards.
The film was selected by the Danish Academy Award Committee.
It launched at Sundance Film Festival in January, where it won the ‘world cinema – dramatic’ audience award.
Subsequent prizes have included three awards at Göteborg Film Festival, including the event’s $110,000 Dragon award for best Nordic film, one of the most lucrative film cash prizes in the industry.
