This is a list of submissions to the 39th Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film. The Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film was created in 1956 by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to honour non-English-speaking films produced outside the United States. The award is handed out annually, and is accepted by the winning film's director, although it is considered an award for the submitting country as a whole. Countries are invited by the Academy to submit their best films for competition according to strict rules, with only one film being accepted from each country.
For the 39th Academy Awards, nineteen films were submitted in the category Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. Romania submitted a film to the competition for the first time. The titles highlighted were the five nominated films, which came from Czechoslovakia, France, Italy, Poland and Yugoslavia. The eventual winner was romantic drama A Man and a Woman, which represented France. The film also won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.
