News

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has invited 96 countries to submit their top film for consideration as a possible Best Foreign Language Film nominee.

About The Netherlands

Original entry, "The Silent Army," reportedly fell short of the Academy's rules that require films be original works and not new versions of an existing motion picture. "Silent" is the recut, international version of Jean van de Velde's 2008 film "Wit Licht," about child soldiers in Africa.

The Acad officially ruled this week that "Silent" was disqualified. According to the submitting org, Holland Film, the Acad noted that this was the first time a pic submitted to the foreign language category had been disqualified for this reason and that the committee members had had differing views on the decision.

New to the list Cuba and Puerto Rico. Mongolia is out! Sri Lanka and Greece have a different film.
