We are on the verge of finding out who the big Oscar winners are. Javier Bardem could potentially walk away with an Oscar for his performance in the exceptionally strong film, Biutiful.
The last actor to win the award for their work in a foreign film was Marion Cotillard for her portrayal of Edith Piaf in La Vie En Rose – the same year Bardem won Best Supporting Actor for No Country for Old Men.
Biutiful is also nominated for Best Foreign Language Film. We’re rooting for Iñárritu. This film is the strongest we’ve seen in years. Well done.
The programming team looks forward to seeing your work. The call to enter is open to films made by or about Latinos from the U.S. and abroad. To qualify, films must be made between 2008 and now and short and feature films are welcome. Deadline to submit is June 1, 2011. Good luck.
