Polish black-and-white film 'Ida' is in the running for best Foreign Film at this year's awards presented by the French Academy of Cinema Arts and Techniques.
“This is further proof that 'Ida' is a film about a universal message, reaching audiences around the world,” said Ewa Puszczyńska, the film's producer.
“This film refers to the values which are important for every human being, regardless of geography,” she added.
Other films in the running for the award are '12 Years a Slave' (US, dir. Steve McQueen, 2013), 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' (US, dir. Wes Anderson, 2014), and others.
The awards ceremony will be held on 20 February in Paris.
