Mongolia has submitted films for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film since 2003. The award is handed out annually by the United States Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to a feature-length motion picture produced outside the United States that contains primarily non-English dialogue.[1]

Mongolia has submitted four films for consideration, although none have been nominated for the Foreign Film Oscar. However, The Story of the Weeping Camel submitted itself for the Academy Award for Best Documentary (Feature) the following year and was nominated. The first two Mongolian submissions were German co-productions, directed or co-directed by Byambasuren Davaa and were filmed in Mongolian.

Submissions

Every year, each country is invited by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to submit its best film for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. The Foreign Language Film Award Committee oversees the process and reviews all the submitted films. Following this, they vote via secret ballot to determine the five nominees for the award.[1] Below is a list of the films that have been submitted by Mongolia for review by the Academy for the award.

The first two Mongolian submissions concerned the lives of rural families on the Mongolian steppe, and the closely intertwined life of people and their animals. Both films contained elements of documentary and fiction and used real Mongolian families as their actors. In Weeping Camel, a family attempts to reconcile a mother camel who refuses to nurse its newborn calf, with a traditional musical ritual. In Yellow Dog, a little girl tries to convince her reluctant family to adopt a wild dog.
