List of Russian Submissions For the Academy Award For Best Foreign Language Film

Nikita Mikhalkov was the first post-Soviet Russian director to win the award, for Burnt by the Sun.[1]

Russia has submitted films for the Academy Award for Best International Feature Film[nb 1] since 1992. Prior to that, Russian films were strongly represented among the films submitted by the former Soviet Union. The Foreign Language Film award is handed out annually by the U.S.-based Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to a feature-length motion picture produced outside the United States that contains primarily non-English dialogue.[4]

Each year, the Academy invites countries to submit their best films for competition, with only one film being accepted from each country.[4] After the breakup of the Soviet Union, films representing the Russian Federation have had six nominations, including one Oscar win for Burnt by the Sun.[5]

Nikita Mikhalkov has been chosen to represent Russia five times. While The Barber of Siberia was disqualified when the print did not arrive in Los Angeles in time,[6] three other films were nominated for an Oscar.

Submissions

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. 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.[4] Below is a list of the films that have been submitted by Russia for review by the Academy since 1992. All Russian submissions were filmed mostly in Russian.

Among the submissions were a horror film about vampires (2004), a Russian film dubbed into German (1999), a controversial anti-corruption film (2014) and a slew of historical dramas.
