March 15 update: 2 Oscar nominations for COLLECTIVE!
We are thrilled at the news we have feverishly been waiting and working for: COLLECTIVE, Romania's submission to this year's Academy Awards, has been nominated not only in one category but two! Huge congratulations to director Alexander Nanau and his team, they have made history as this is the first Romanian film ever to arrive so far in the most competitive film race in the world! We'll continue to support the campaign in the hope that COLLECTIVE brings home the famous statuette!
We are excited to join forces with Magnolia Pictures, Participant Media and Alexander Nanau Production for the campaign to make Alexander Nanau’s COLLECTIVE, this season’s cinematic revelation and our national submission to the 93rd Academy Awards in the Best International Feature Film category, the first ever Romanian film to be nominated at the Oscars.
COLLECTIVE has already made history on February 9, 2021 when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences shortlisted it in two categories – Documentary Feature and International Feature Film – and launched it in the cut-throat race for Oscar nominations, which are to be announced on March 15.
Showered with praise and accolades, the multi-awarded documentary examines the courageous pursuit for truth and justice of a group of committed journalists, social activists and survivors after Romania’s most tragic public accident in recent memory.
