36 European titles submitted for the Oscars race

The submission period for the Best Foreign-language Film at the 90th Academy Awards has come to an end. Last year, 85 features were submitted to the Oscars, but this year the number has increased to 92. 36 of the countries that have submitted films for consideration for nomination are European.

Nine finalists will be selected from the total number of submissions by the end of December, before the Academy whittles that number down to five, announcing the nominees on 23 January 2018. The 90th Oscars ceremony will be held on 4 March 2018.
