Bangladesh has selected Golam Rabbany Biblob's directorial debut On The Wings Of Dreams, while Greece has picked Angeliki Antoniou's Eduart for the Best Foreign Language Film category at the forthcoming 80th Academy Awards.

Both films are being handled internationally by the Berlin-based sales agent MDC International who is also representing another Oscar national entry, Aleksi Salemnpera's box-office hit Man's Job from Finland.

Man's Job, which is screening this week at the San Sebastian Film Festival, and Eduart have also been selected for consideration by the members of the European Film Academy for this year's European Film Awards in Berlin on December 1.

Eduart won nine Greek Film Awards at last year's Thessaloniki International Film Festival and has been invited to screen at Germany's Hof Film Days and the Seville International Film Festival in the coming weeks.

MDC picked up Biblob's film on its world premiere at the Rotterdam International Film Festival at the beginning of the year.

Since then, it has won the Best Director prize at the Shanghai International Film Festival in June and will be shown in Chicago's programme next month.

Meanwhile, Fatih Akin, the director of Germany's entry The Edge Of Heaven, will have two chances at getting onto the list of the final five nominated films following the decision of Turkey to submit Ozer Kiziltan's Takva - A Man's Fear Of God which Akin's Hamburg-based production company Corazon International co-produced.

Takva won the FIPRESCI prize for the best film in the Panorama section of this year's Berlinale and, most recently, received the Heart of Sarajevo award for best feature film in the regional competition at the Sarajevo Film Festival in August. It is being handled internationally by The Match Factory.
