Digger by Georgis Grigorakis
After the most atypical edition ever, which culminated in a ceremony on 25 April (two months later than originally planned due to pandemic restrictions and the deceleration of film releases), the Academy Awards seem to be back on the usual tracks. With the 94th Academy Awards ceremony scheduled to take place in Hollywood on 27 March, 2022, European countries are starting to reveal their titles submitted for the Best International Feature Film Award.
For this edition, submitted films must have been released in their respective countries between the dates of 1 January and 31 December 2021, and the deadline for submissions is 1 November. Fifteen finalists will be selected from the total number of submissions and announced on 21 December, before the Academy whittles that number down to five, which it will announce as the final nominees on 8 February 2022.

Last year, a total of 97 countries submitted a film, with 93 submissions being accepted (matching the 2019 record), and 38 coming from a European country. Denmark's submission, Thomas Vinterberg's Another Round[+see also: film review trailer film profile], ended up winning the coveted trophy.
