Your Guide to the 83 Best Foreign Language Film 2015 Oscar Contenders

Written by on October 7, 2014 


While the awards talk already this season has been discussed ad nauseam, we do give special credence to a specific section of the Academy Awards: the Best Foreign Language Film submissions. As close as cinema gets to a World Cup or Olympics, each country is able to submit their choice to compete for the award, with a few guidelines. Notably, each film must have been released in its respective country from October 1st of the previous year to September 30th of this year.

With that date recently passing, The Academy has confirmed 83 countries that have submitted a selection and today we are going to take a look at them all. Notable inclusions are Palme D’Or winner Winter Sleep, Pawel Pawlikowski‘s Ida, Xavier Dolan‘s Mommy, the DardennesTwo Days, One Night, and Ruben Östlund‘s Force Majeure, while Mauritania submitted for the first time ever with Abderrahmane Sissako‘s Timbuktu, and Panama and Kosovo also with Invasion and Three Windows and a Hanging, respectively.

As these get initially pared down by The Academy, and then subsequent finalist lists, all the way to five nominees in January, followed by the winner during the ceremonies, check back for coverage. In the meantime, see trailers for (almost) all 83 films below, and reviews where available.
