AFT Awards: Best Foreign Film

This is the nineteenth category of the 5th Annual AFT Film Awards to be announced. The AFT Awards are my own personal choices for the best in film of each year and the best in television of each season. The AFT Film Awards include the traditional Oscar categories and a number of additional specific honors. Nominees are pictured in alphabetical order. Click here to see previous years of this category. For this category, I consider eligible only films that were released in their native countries within the past year. Therefore, films like “In a Better World” and “When We Leave,” had I seen them earlier, would have been eligible last year.

The winner:
Turn Me On, Goddamit (Norway) was bold, creative, uninhibited, and deeply entertaining.

Other nominees:
A Separation (Iran)
Happy, Happy (Norway)
The Skin I Live In (Spain)
In the Land of Blood and Honey (USA)
