The Korean Film Council (KFC) announced on August 4 that it had finished receiving Korean movies candidates to represent Korea in submissions to 84th Academy Awards in the category of Best Foreign Language Film.

Member countries in the World Film Federation are each allowed to submit one film. Nine of the submitted films will be selected as the final nominees. Korea has formerly submitted the films "Oasis", "Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... And Spring", "Taegukgi", and "Welcome to Dongmakgol" but has yet to make the final list.

An official from the KFC announced that this year, films including "Sunny - 2010", "The Front Line", "Poongsan", and "The Yellow Sea" were included for consideration. "The Yellow Sea" is considered the favorite in light of its invitation to compete in the 'Un Certain Regard' category at the 64th Cannes Film Festival.

The KFC will screen the submitted films and announce the results in early September at www.kofic.or.kr.

The 84th Academy Awards Ceremony will be held on February 26, 2012, at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles, California.
