AFT Awards: Best Foreign Film

This is the nineteenth category of the 8th 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 the order I’ve ranked them. 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.

Honorable mentions:
Brides, Difret, Leviathan, Rocks in My Pockets, Two Days, One Night

The winner:
Wild Tales (Argentina), which didn’t get a U.S. release until 2015 after showing at the Sundance Film Festival, was a spectacular example of what a creative format can do, representing anger in the most entertaining and memorable of cinematic ways.

Other nominees:
Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem(Israel)
Zero Motivation (Israel)
Blind (Norway)
The Way He Looks (Brazil)
