List Of Iranian Submissions For The Academy Award For Best Foreign Language Film
The Islamic Republic of Iran has submitted films for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film regularly since 1994. Prior to the Islamic Revolution of 1979, Imperial Iran sent a single film in 1977.
Iran has submitted a total of seventeen films for Oscar consideration and two films, Majid Majidi's Children of Heaven and Asghar Farhadi's A Separation, have received an Oscar nomination and Farhadi's film won the award. Four of the selected films, including one of their successful submissions, were directed by Majid Majidi. Kambuzia Partovi, Bahman Ghobadi and Asghar Farhadi were each chosen to represent Iran at the Oscars on two occasions.
On September 24, 2012, the film A Cube of Sugar was selected as the Iranian entry for the Best Foreign Language Oscar at the 85th Academy Awards. However, on the same day the head of Iran's government controlled cinema agency called for a boycott of the Oscars due to the Innocence of Muslims video on Youtube that originated in the United States. Reuters reported that Iran's Culture and Islamic Guidance Minister Mohammad Hosseini had confirmed that Iran would boycott.
