The 33rd European Film Awards was scheduled to be presented in Reykjavík, Iceland on December 12, 2020.[3][4][5] Because of the COVID-19 pandemic the Awards took place as a virtual ceremony without an audience, broadcast and streamed from the European Film Academy’s seat, Berlin, on Saturday, 12 December 2020. The European Film Academy (EFA), the Mayor of Reykjavik and the Icelandic Minister of Education, Science and Culture decided to cancel the event in the Icelandic capital in December 2020 and announced that instead the 35th European Film Awards Ceremony will be presented in Reykjavik in December 2022.
