The Korean Film Council has selected director Kim Ki-duk's latest film "Pieta," which won the best film award at this year's Venice Film Festival, as an entry for the Foreign Language Film category of the 2013 Academy Awards, the council said Thursday.
Korean films have been submitted to the Academy Awards since 1963, but have never been nominated. The Oscar nominations will be decided next January.
"Pieta" was chosen among five Korean films released this year including "The Taste of Money" by Im Sang-soo, "In Another Country" by Hong Sang-soo, "Nameless Gangster" by Yoon Jong-bin and "Masquerade" by Choo Chang-min.
