Directed by Balazs Simonyi, Ultra is a unique insight into the pasts, hearts and minds of five ultra-distance runners. Their dream is to finish the ‘Spartathlon’ extreme running race, and by doing so, they test their limits, heal their souls and release their inner demons.

The film, which screened in Visions du Reel and Sarajevo Film Festival, was selected by a special jury of the European Film Academy amongst 15 documentaries. The members of the European Film Academy will vote two times: first time to get 5 nominees, and second time to vote for the winner.
