2010 BAFTA’s News – Foreign-language Films

Can’t find the news at the official site but Variety is saying that only four (4) films from this year’s 65 Oscar entries have qualified for the BAFTA’s. That’s too little but take a look at the films: A Prophet from France, The White Ribbon from Germany, Harishchandrachi Factory from India and UK’s own Afghan Star. Great films even if I haven’t seen two.

Those films are among 40 eligible contenders that include movies like Almodovar’s Broken Embrances, Coco Before Chanel, Sweden’s Let the Right One In, Mesrine, The Class and Departures. Remember that to qualify the film has to have a UK release during 2009, so that’s why there are some “older” movies and just having a UK release qualifies them.

I’m very interested in finding the complete list of 40 films, so if any of you can help please feel free to leave the link as a comment. If you want to check the article at Variety go here.
