LOS ANGELES, CA, October 08, 2019 — Ninety-three countries have submitted films for consideration in the International Feature Film category for the 92nd Academy Awards. The Academy defines an international feature film as a feature-length motion picture (more than 40 minutes) produced outside the United States with a predominantly non-English dialogue track. Ghana, Nigeria, and Uzbekistan are first-time entrants.

Earlier this year, the Academy’s Board of Governors voted to rename the Foreign Language Film category to International Feature Film and expand the shortlist from nine to 10 films.

The 2019 submissions, listed in alphabetical order by country, are:

The Academy will announce the shortlist of 10 films on Monday, December 16, 2019. It would announce the nominations for the 92nd Oscars on Monday, January 13, 2020.

The 92nd Oscars will be held on Sunday, February 9, 2020, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, and will be televised live on the ABC Television Network. The Oscars also will be televised live in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is a global community of more than 9,000 of the most accomplished artists, filmmakers, and executives working in film. It celebrates and recognizes excellence in filmmaking through the Oscars.
