While not 100% official, yet, it appears that 66 nations will compete for Best Foreign Language Film at 2013 Academy Awards.
Included in that list are
three four (see below) films from the 2012 Nashville Film Festival:
France submitted The Intouchables, which won the Southwest Airlines Audience Award for Best Narrative. Slovenia submitted A Trip which won the Best New Director prize. And Thailand submitted Headshot, which was featured in the World Cinema program and was just released into theaters in New York and LA. Updated: Missing from the IndieWire list at the time of writing, Greenland has selected Inuk as it's submission.
Other films of note include the first non-Aboriginal submission from Australia (Lore is in German) and Kenya has submitted for the first time in their nation's history.
Michael Haneke's Amour is the submission from Austria. Norway submitted the most expensive film in their nation's history, Kon-Tiki, which was a hit at the Toronto Film Festival but still lacks a US distributor. Pablo Lorrain's No, from Chile, was also well-received up north. It stars Gael Garcia Bernal, well-known to Academy voters, so they may pull off their first nomination.
