French co-productions join the race for the Oscars

While Declaration of War by Valérie Donzelli is France's official Academy Awards entry, a number of French co-productions will also be vying for an Oscar.


Three other films whose international rights are handled by French companies are also in the running for Academy Awards: A Separation by Asghar Farhadi, representing Iran (sold by Memento Films distribution), October by Daniel and Diego Vega, representing Peru (both sold by UDI - Urban Distribution International), and The Colors of the Mountain by Carlos César Arbelàez, representing Colombia.

We can also note that The Weinstein Company is actively campaigning to promote The Artist by Michel Hazanavicius in the lead-up to the Oscars in the hope of snaring nominations in the Best Film and Best Actor categories.

France's official submission to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences was selected by a committee of industry professionals gathered under the aegis of the CNC (Centre National du Cinéma et de l'Image Animée) in September, 2011.

The five finalists in the Best Foreign-Language Film category will be announced by the Academy on January 24, 2012. The Academy Awards ceremony will be held February 24, 2012.
