Despite this year's atypical situation, European countries are starting to reveal their titles submitted for the Best International Feature Film Award at the 93rd Academy Awards. Originally scheduled for 28 February, the awards ceremony has now been postponed to 25 April due to the coronavirus pandemic, which will undoubtedly have an impact on the year's calendar.

Right now, the submission deadline for Best International Feature Film award is 1 December, 2020. Once the submission period is over, nine finalists will be selected from the total number of submissions, before the Academy whittles that number down to five, which will announce as the final nominees.

Last year, 40 out of a record 93 submissions are from a European country. The unprecedented success of a foreign-language film, Parasite by South Korea's Bong Joon-ho, is putting a lot of expectations on this year's international submissions, especially now that it looks like the Hollywood studios are halted due to the pandemic.

Cineuropa will be updating the list of European films submitted here:
