Committee Studies Iranian Candidates for Oscar

TEHRAN (FNA)- Four Iranian films were chosen to be scrutinized by a committee as possible candidates to attend the 2010 US Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Sciences (Oscar) Film Festival.



The films named as Twenty, Penniless, About Elly and Doubt directed respectively by Abdolreza Kahani, Hamid Nematollah, Asghar Farhadi and Varuzh Karim Masihi were selected among 11 films to represent Iran as possible candidates in Oscar.

The committee is due to choose one of the films by October 1.

The 82nd Academy Awards nominations will be announced on February 2.

The only Iranian film which has so far been lucky enough to stand among the five nominees for Oscar was Children of Heaven directed by Majid Majidi which was among the 1998 five official nominations for the Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film.
