London’s Tricycle cinema, in Kilburn, is planning a 10-day series devoted to international Oscar contenders.
From Feb 14-23, the independent cinema will screen international film submissions for this year’s Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.
The films set to screen are:
The Silent House (Uruguay)
A Separation (Iran)
Once Upon A Time In Anatolia (Turkey)
Breathing (Atmen) (Austria)
Miss Bala (Mexico)
As If I Am Not There (Ireland)

Rumble of Stones (Venezuela)
Guests on hand for Q&Aswill include Lithuanian director Kristijonas Vildziunas (Back To Your Arms), Romanian
actor Andras Hathazi (Morgen) and Swiss cinematographer Lorenz Merz (Summer Games).
Nicolas Kent, Artistic Director of the Tricycle says: “Following the success of the Tricycle’s first International Oscar season in 2011, we are delighted that this year’s celebration of international cinema will be even bigger, offering London’s culturally diverse cinema-going audience an opportunity, not only to celebrate their own countries on screen, but to see films from all over the world. Unfortunately it is still the case that many of the Foreign
Language film entries to the Oscars are never screened in the UK, and it is wonderful to give audiences the chance to enjoy some of the finest films from all over the world.”
