38 European titles submitted for the Oscars race

The submission period for the Best Foreign-language Film at the 91st Academy Awards has officially come to an end. Last year, 92 features were submitted to the Oscars, but this year the number has decreased to 87. 38 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 22 January 2019. The 91st Oscars ceremony will be held on 24 February 2019.
