The submission list for the 84th Annual Academy Awards' foreign-language category has been officially announced, with 63 countries selecting films. The selection includes high profile entries on this year's festival circuit, including Wim Wenders's "Pina" (Germany), Aki Kaurismaki's "Le Havre" (Finland), Béla Tarr's "The Turin Horse" (Hungary), Joseph Cedar's "Footnote" (Israel), Asghar Farhadi's "A Separation" (Iran) and Toronto Film Festival People's Choice Award winner "Where Do We Go Now?," directed by Nadine Labaki.

Labaki is part of a notable trend in the submissions, with a significant amount of countries submitting female-directed films, including France (Valérie Donzelli's "Declaration of War"), Hong Kong (Ann Hui's "A Simple Life"), Norway (Anne Sewitsky's "Happy Happy"), Poland (Agnieszka Holland's "In Darkness"), The Netherlands (Maria Peters's "Sonny Boy") and multiple others.

Last year, the category ended up being won by Denmark (in another female-directed example, Susanne Bier's "In a Better World"). The list of announced submissions is below. The deadline for all countries to send in their submissions was October 3, 2011. The submitted motion pictures must be first released theatrically in their respective countries between October 1, 2010 and September 30, 2011.
