17 French co-productions among 85 contenders for Best Foreign-Language Film Oscar

In addition to Paul Verhoeven's film Elle, which has been selected as France's submission in the Best Foreign-Language Film category at the Oscars, 16 other French co-productions (including majority-French productions) have been chosen as the official entry from their country of linguistic origin.

Sixteen French co-productions (not including Paul Verhoeven's film) feature among the 85 films officially submitted to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS).

A list of nine finalists will be announced in December, after which the five official nominees will be revealed on January 24th, in the lead-up to the 89th Academy Awards ceremony to be held at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood on February 26, 2017.
