Jacques Audiard's French film A Prophet, Michael Haneke's German film The White Ribbon and Bong Joon-ho's Mother, from South Korea -- three films that have figured prominently on this year's festival circuit -- are among the titles being considered for the foreign-language film Oscar.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences released its list Thursday of the 65 countries that have submitted films for the 82nd Annual Academy Awards.

Nominations will be announced on February 2, and the awards ceremony will take place March 7.
