List of Philippine submissions for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film

The Philippines have submitted films for consideration for the Best Foreign-Language Film category of the Academy Awards since the inception of the category in 1956, when the Italian film La Strada won the honors. The award is handed out annually by the United States Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to a feature-length motion picture produced outside the United States that contains primarily non-English dialogue.[1]

In the 26th Academy Awards (1953), the first Filipino film to be exhibited in the Venice Film Festival, Genghis Khan, was under contention for receipt of the Honorary Foreign Language Film award, the precursor to the current category.[2]

From 1956 to the inception of the Film Academy of the Philippines in 1982, four films have been submitted for consideration by the Film Society of the Philippines, the Film Institute of the Philippines, the Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences (FAMAS), and the Philippine Movie Producers Association; the four organizations that were responsible for doing so. Only four films were sent during those times because of certain technicalities that vetoed possible submissions out of the list.

Since 1982, the Film Academy has, on an irregular basis, sent submissions to the Academy Awards for that category.[3]
