Golden Globe Foreign-Language Nominee Series

See films in this series playing at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood!

View full schedule of Screenings

Co-presented with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association


In early 1944, a number of movie stars went to 20th Century Fox Studios to see what a small group of foreign journalists had found to be especially worthwhile during the preceding year. The journalists, all members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, decided that this would be an annual event. By 1962, the general public was invited to the celebration when KTTV Los Angeles first televised the awards.

We’re happy to host this series of screenings devoted to the films and filmmakers nominated for a Golden Globe in the Best Foreign-Language Film category. Five films will be spotlighted. For more information about the Golden Globes, visit:

All films in original language with English subtitles.

Please also join us for a free panel discussion with the directors of the Golden Globe Foreign-Language Nominees, at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood on Saturday, January 15, at 1:00 PM.




Tuesday, January 11 - 7:30 PM

Co-presented with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association

Golden Globe Foreign-Language Nominee from Russia: THE EDGE (KRAY), 2010, 124 min. Dir. Aleksei Uchitel. In the post-WWII Siberian wilderness, Russian veteran and train aficionado Ignat (Vladimir Mashkov) is stationed at labor camp Kray among Russians sentenced as traitors under Stalin’s rule for conspiring with Germans in battle. On a mission to recover an abandoned train on an island across the river, he meets Elsa, a young German girl living for years in seclusion. With the challenge of building a bridge back to camp the only option, Ignat gradually drops his guard and develops a relationship with the girl, despite strong national prejudice. With stunning cinematography by Yuri Klimenko, featuring a memorable train race through the barren, snowy woods. In Russian and German with English subtitles. Introduction by director Aleksei Uchitel. Trailer | Buy Tickets




Wednesday, January 12 7:30PM

Co-presented with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association:

Golden Globe Foreign-Language Nominee from France THE CONCERT (LE CONCERT), 2009, 119 min. Andrei Filipov (Aleksei Guskov), once the famed conductor of the Bolshoi orchestra, was humiliatingly fired under Brezhnev’s rule for keeping Jewish musicians in the company. Now, working as a lowly janitor in the very same building, he intercepts an invitation for the current Bolshoi orchestra to perform at the Châtelet Theater in Paris and seizes an opportunity to right the wrongs of the past for himself and his former musicians. Gathering the company together with the addition of a young violinist (Mélanie Laurent, INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS), Andrei sets off on a heist to complete the Tchaikovsky concerto performance he has waited thirty years to finish. Equal parts farcical, engaging, and poignant, director Radu Mihaileanu crafts a journey of highs and lows that climaxes "in a place of transcendent emotion that sends everyone out of the theater in a swirl of transport." - Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle In French and Russian with English subtitles.

Thursday, January 13 – 7:30PM

Co-presented with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association

Golden Globe Foreign-Language Nominee from Italy: I AM LOVE (IO SONO L'AMORE), 2009, 120 min. "When I moved to Milan, I stopped being Russian," says Emma (Tilda Swinton), an immigrant who’s lost one identity but never fully formed another after marrying into the wealthy Recchi family. Echoing Visconti, writer-director Luca Guadagnino paints a clear picture of modern day life in the Italian aristocracy and one woman’s internal struggle with displacement. A chance meeting with a young chef awakens Emma’s sensibilities, threatening to shake the foundation of her marriage with unexpected consequences. Featuring a hauntingly operatic score by John Adams. "An amazing film. It is deep, rich, human." –Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times In Italian and Russian with English subtitles. Introduction by director Luca Guadagnino.

Friday, January 14 – 7:30PM, Aero Theatre

Golden Globe Foreign-Language Nominee from Mexico & Spain Co-presented with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association: BIUTIFUL, 2010, 147 min. From director Alejandro González Iñárritu (AMORES PERROS, 21 GRAMS) comes this stylized, surreal portrait of single father Uxbal (Javier Bardem), scraping by in the present-day Barcelona slums working as a liaison between illegal immigrants from Senegal and China and those who exploit them for work. A psychic ability allows Uxbal to relay messages between the recently deceased and their relatives, but when death appears imminent in his own path, he must settle the life he will leave behind. Iñárritu’s intense, harshly-lit imagery, a piercing soundtrack by Gustavo Santaolalla, and a masterfully emotional performance from Bardem provide a lens into the world of a man forced to confront the corruption of his livelihood and find redemption for himself. "A sublime epic, and possibly the best film of the year by a long way." -Anthony Kaufman, In Spanish with English subtitles. Official Website | Trailer
