Category International Feature Film

Dutch feature Narcosis by Martijn de Jong and produced by OAK Motion Pictures is The Netherlands’s Oscar submission for the 95th Academy Awards in the category International Feature Film.

Every year, the Dutch Oscar Selection Committee (NOSC) selects a film that will be submitted to the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) in the US as the Dutch entry for the Academy Awards in the category International Feature Film. SEE NL is the official coordinator of this process.

By the beginning of September 2022 the NOSC members participate in an officially notarized written vote to determine which film is to be submitted for the 95th Academy Awards. The NOSC consists of representatives from various professional associations and organisations in the Dutch film industry. You can find the names of the 2022 NOSC members in this list (in Dutch). The AMPAS regulations are available to read here (see Rule Thirteen Special Rules for the International Feature Film Award) and the Selection Procedure for the 2022 Dutch Oscar Entry is available to read here (in Dutch).

Dutch producers could register their film(s) for the selection of the Netherlands submission to the Oscars – category International Feature Film until 1 August 2022.
