18 French coproductions to compete for the Oscar for Best International Film

This year, among the 94 films submitted by eligible countries for the Oscar in the Best International Film category—in addition to Les Misérables, which has been officially selected to represent France—are 18 French coproductions, with four of these titles majority-French coproductions.

In 2017, a new record was set with the number of films in which France was a coproduction partner reaching 27, four of which were majority-French coproductions (of a total of 92 films submitted to the AMPAS in the category of Best Foreign-Language Film, which has been now renamed Best International Film).

This year features fewer French coproductions on the list of entries (18), but the number of majority coproductions included remains the same, highlighting the vitality and dynamism of French production companies in the international arena.

The list of titles vying for the Oscar will be gradually whittled in several stages in upcoming months, with a short list of around ten films to be announced before the end of the year. The final list of nominees will be announced on January 13, 2020, prior to the awards ceremony held on February 24.

Les Misérables, the film chosen by the French selection committee to represent France, is not included in the following list of submissions. Majority-French coproductions are shown in bold.
