NaFF 2012 Southwest Airlines Audience Award Winner for Best Narrative The Intouchables is the official selection of France for the upcoming Academy Awards! With Slovenia's recent selection of A Trip, that's two (and counting, hopefully) films being submitted to the Academy for Best Foreign Language Film. (Read the full story at Indie Wire).
With this news - and the fact that The Intouchables is already the highest grossing foreign language film of the year - I think the rumors of anexpansion back into theaters by the Weinstein Company seems very likely to come true.
