AFT Awards: Best Foreign Film

This is the nineteenth category of the 7th 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.

The winner:
Blue is the Warmest Color (France) – also honored in other categories – was a stunning and heartfelt drama about the deep connection between two young women.

Other nominees:
The Broken Circle Breakdown (Belgium)
The Great Beauty (Italy)
The Hunt (Denmark)
The Past (Iran)
