The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has selected three international student film winners, from 51 entries representing 29 countries for the 39th Annual Student Academy Awards competition. The student filmmakers will be brought to Los Angeles to join U.S.-based Student Academy Award recipients for a week of industry activities, which will culminate in the awards ceremony on Saturday, June 9.  The films will receive Gold, Silver, or Bronze medals, earning them $5000, $3000, or $2000 respectively.


The 2012 Foreign Film winners (listed alphabetically by film title):

"For Elsie," David Winstone, University of Westminster, United Kingdom

"Of Dogs and Horses," Thomas Stuber, Film Academy Baden-Wüerttemberg, Germany

"The Swing of the Coffin Maker," Elmar Imanov, The International Film School Cologne, Germany


Several past winners in the Foreign Film competition have gone on to earn further recognition from the Academy.  At the 84th Academy Awards earlier this year, 2011 Student Academy Award winners Hallvar Witzø and Max Zähle were nominated in the Live Action Short Film category for "Tuba Atlantic" and "Raju," respectively.  The 2010 Foreign Film award winner, Tanel Toom, was a nominee at the 83rd Academy Awards in the Live Action Short Film category for "The Confession."  Two other previous student winners, Jan Sverak of the former Czechoslovakia, and Mike van Diem of The Netherlands, went on to direct films that won Oscars in the Foreign Language Film category.
