List of Mexican submissions for the Academy Award for Best International Feature Film

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Alfonso Cuarón directed Roma (2018), Mexico's first film to win the award.

Mexico has submitted films for the Academy Award for Best International Feature Film[nb 1] since 1957. The award is handed out annually by the United States Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to a feature-length motion picture produced outside the United States that contains primarily non-English dialogue.[3] The award was not created until the 1956 Academy Awards, in which a competitive Academy Award of Merit, known as the Best Foreign Language Film Award, was created for non-English speaking films, and has been given annually since.[4]

Mexico has submitted fifty-four films for Oscar consideration over the years, and nine Mexican films have been nominated by the Academy for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. Arturo Ripstein has represented Mexico five times—more than any other Mexican director—although he has never received an Oscar nomination. Roma became the first Mexican film to win.[5]

The Mexican nominee is selected annually by the Academia Mexicana de Artes y Ciencias Cinematográficas. The selection committee holds separate votes to decide which film goes to the Oscars and, in a separate vote, which film goes to the Spanish Goya Awards.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has invited the film industries of various countries to submit their best film for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film since 1956.[4] The Foreign Language Film Award Committee oversees the process and reviews all the submitted films. Following this, they vote via secret ballot to determine the five nominees for the award.[3] Below is a list of the films that have been submitted by Mexico for review by the Academy for the award by year and the respective Academy Awards ceremony.

All Mexican submissions were exclusively in Spanish with two exceptions: their 2007 submission, Silent Light, which was exclusively in the Plautdietsch dialect of Low German; as well as their 2018 submission, Roma, which is partially in Spanish as well as partially in Mixtec.
