95th Academy Awards International Feature Film Submissions

This year Ireland became the very first country to announce their Oscars entry to the 2023 edition of the Academy Awards. So, it's in August that we start the post even when since July been looking almost daily for info about this yearly post that really enjoy doing as gives me the panoramic of the films I'll be looking to forward to watch as soon as possible.

As mentioned there are many news from countries calling for producers to submit their films for consideration by local AMPAS approved Oscars selection committee and many have scheduled their procedure. At post end all press announcements will be listed with their respective schedule and will updated as soon as other countries announce their choices.

Worth sharing is that no related news have captured the attention of film industry press and social media as the one about France changing their selection committee to exclude heads of Unifrance and Cannes film festival. Somehow is no good news but Thiery Fremaux has been loud in the past when saying that he doesn't want to belong to the selection committee, to avoid possible missinterpretations when selection comes from Cannes Festival. Well. seems his wishes have been given by France's Ministry of Culture. By the way, the new committee has Jacques Audiard so indeed well-known film related master filmmakers are included.

We have to mention that submission rules has been modify to what they where before the pandemic. If you wish to read the news go official site here and to check the Special Rules for the International Feature Film Award go here.
