BPM (Beats Per Minute) joins the race for the Oscars
Three films were pre-selected by the committee responsible for choosing the film that represents France at the 2018 Oscars in the Foreign-Language Film category: Barbara by Mathieu Amalric, Redoubtable by Michel Hazanavicius, and BPM (Beats Per Minute) by Robin Campillo.
It was Robin Campillo's film that was finally chosen by the committee, which included Teresa Cremisi, president of the Avance sur Recettes Commission; Anne Fontaine, filmmaker; Thierry Frémaux, artistic director of the Festival de Cannes; Deniz Gamze Ergüven, filmmaker; Jean-Paul Salomé, filmmaker; Alain Terzian, president of the Académie des César; and Serge Toubiana, president of UniFrance.
Frédérique Bredin, president of the CNC, applauds this choice: "With BPM (Beats Per Minute), Robin Campillo offers us an exceptional film on a subject that is painfully universal and always relevant."
The next step in the process will be the announcement by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) of the short-list of films selected, followed by the final unveiling of the list of nominees for the award, late January. The 90th Oscars Ceremony will be held on March 4, 2018, in Hollywood.
We can also add that BPM (Beats Per Minute) has been sold in around forty markets to date. Following its release in Switzerland and Belgium, it will hit movie screens in the The Netherlands, Italy, Quebec, Germany, Austria, and Spain between now and the end of the year.
