• Best International Feature Film Panels

Film Festival 2024

It’s another notable year for the Academy’s Best International Feature Film category: 92 countries put forward a film in the hopes of taking home the coveted golden statue.

This year, we're hosting TWO FREE panels with a number of shortlisted directors in attendance. Catch both panels back to back on January 8, at the Annenberg Theater to get a unique understanding of these films and their makers.

Each panel will have its own unqiue lineup of guests. The first panel is scheduled to begin at 12pm, followed by the second panel at 2:30pm.

Co-presented with The Hollywood Reporter
