"The Third Half" by Darko Mitrevski is one of the ten Oscar contenders from non-English speaking countries which will be screened in Los Angeles in early November at the American Film Market.
Mitrevski's box office hit will be screened on Nov. 4 at the Wilshire Screening Room in Beverly Hills.
"These special screenings aim at providing publicity and seeking US distributors for the ten European movies. 'The Third Half' in the running to be shortlisted for Best Foreign Language Film will be screened before distributors and international buyers as well as before members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences," the Film Fund of Macedonia has said.
The screenings are organised by the European Film Promotion and the EU's Media Programme.
A record number of films (71) are vying this year to scoop the Oscar for best foreign language feature. Five films will be selected as official nominations, which are going to be announced on Jan. 10. The award ceremony is scheduled to take place on Feb. 24.
