[UPDATE – October 1, 2011:  GFI grantee SKOONHEID is also going to the Oscars!  See full post about all awards here]

Congratulations to Ahmed Imamovic, and Daniel and Diego Vega!  Ahmed’s second film, BELVEDERE (currently featured in Global Lens 2011), is Bosnia-Herzegovina’s official submission to the 2011 Academy Awards!  And not to be outdone, the Vega brothers’ debut feature [and 2008 GFI grant-recipient], OCTOBER, is Peru’s official submission!

We wish both films much success, with fingers crossed for a golden Oscar (and a clandestine note of luck for GFI grantee Dervis Zaim, whose film SHADOWS AND FACES, is short-listed as Turkey’s official submission)!

BELVEDERE is currently on tour throughout the United States and Canada as part of Global Lens 2011, and OCTOBER can be seen in various festivals and theatrical locations nationwide (check distributor site for details).
