Foreign Film Race Pt 1: All the Trailers (Albania to Italy)

Everything You Wanted to Know About the Foreign Language Film Category... *But Were Afraid to Ask

It's official. 85 countries will compete for this year's Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. The 85 films will be narrowed down to 9 finalist in December with the actual nominations announced in January.

Are they any changes from our previous elaborate chart tracking? Yes. There are always a few surprises. Previously announced titles that are not on the list for reasons we're not sure about yet are Afghanistan's Parting , Armenia's The Earthquake and Tunisia's As I Open My Eyes.  Titles that we didn't have advanced notice about that are on the list are Cambodia's Before the Fall and Yemen's I Am Nojoom, Age 10 and Divorced which is Yemen's very first submission. 

Here are all the trailers in one place. We're helpful that way...

Tis the season of wondering what the Academy's Foreign Language Film committees might take a shine to. While you enjoy this we'll be polishing up the Official Submission Charts to make them cleaner now that the Academy has made things official. 

Which of these 85 films are you eager to see? Which do you think Oscar might also warm to?
