The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) invited the film industries of various countries to submit their best film for the Academy Award for Best International Feature Film. The award is presented annually by the Academy to a feature-length motion picture produced outside the United States that contains primarily non-English dialogue.

Cameroon’s Oscar Selection Committee selected and put forward The Planters Plantation to represent Cameroon. The International Feature Film Award Committee then received and reviewed all the submitted films, engaging in their internal process of making sure the movie is artistically and technically apt for the category. The result of this review from The International Feature Film Award Committee was successful for The Planters Plantation as it has now been named Cameroon’s only submission for the 95th Academy Awards’ Best International Feature Film.
