Academy Shortlists Nine Foreign Language Films

-

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that nine features have been shortlisted in the foreign language film category for the 87th Academy Awards. Originally, 83 films were in consideration in the category.

Foreign language film nominations are determined in two phases. The first phase committee, consisting of several hundred Los Angeles-based Academy members, screened the original submissions between mid-October and Dec. 15. The group’s top six choices, augmented by three additional selections voted by the Academy’s foreign language film award executive committee, constitute the shortlist.

The shortlist will be winnowed down to the category’s five nominees by specially invited committees in New York, Los Angeles and, for the first time, London. Between Jan. 9-11, they will view three films each day and then cast their ballots.

The shortlisted films are:

Argentina
Wild Tales, Damián Szifrón, director

Estonia
Tangerines, Zaza Urushadze, director
