The Finnish documentary Hobbyhorse Revolution has been nominated for an EFA Young Audience Award.

The award, which is presented by the European Film Academy, rewards films aimed at young people. Hobbyhorse Revolution is one of three films nominated.

The documentary, which is directed by Selma Vilhunen, is about young hobbyhorse enthusiasts. Last month, the Finnish Cultural Foundation rewarded Vilhunen a grand prize for her cultural contributions. Last year, her feature film Little Wing won the Nordic Council Film Prize.

The winner will be announced on the 6th of May after being voted for by an international youth jury. All films will be distributed on VOD distribution around Europe.
