Film ‘Willow’ by Milcho Manchevski is Macedonia’s “Oscar” candidate in the Best International Feature Film category for 2021, said the Association of Film Workers of Macedonia on Monday.

The Association informed that the submission of ‘Willow’ as our national representative in the race for the most famous film award has been accepted and approved by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences.

‘Willow’ has won a total of 5 international awards so far.

In 1995 Manchevski’s ‘Before the Rain’ brought Macedonia the first Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language Film, and he has had other two of his films, ‘Shadows’ and ‘Mothers’, submitted for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, but failed to get an Oscar nomination.
