8/9: WJFF Presents ‘For Your Consideration’ Film Series

Explore the best foreign language film Oscar submissions from around the world with our friends at the Washington Jewish Film Festival.

Coming off the 27th edition of their Festival, the WJFF presents For Your Consideration, a selection of Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award submissions, running August 9-13. The series, curated by California Film Institute, offers a rare opportunity to view some of the most distinguished works in world cinema featuring films from Poland, Nepal, Italy, Australia, and more.

The lineup includes Venice Film Festival winner Tanna, a tale of young lovers filmed in the South Pacific island of Vanuatu in collaboration with the Yakel people of the island; and Fire at Sea, a stunning documentary centered on the tiny Sicilian island of Lampedusa, a key entry point for refugees fleeing war and persecution in Africa.
