The selection of the jury will take place from January 27th to February 1st, the final selection of the nominated films will be announced on February 8th. In 2021, the Academy had extended the application window to February 28 due to the Covid 19 pandemic; this year it was shortened to ten months.

The Academy had already announced its shortlists in ten categories in December 2021, on which two Germans made it. In the “International Feature Film” category, director Maria Schrader (56) competes against 14 other nominated films with her tragic comedy “I am your human”. The German composer Hans Zimmer (64) made it onto the shortlist twice with his compositions for the science fiction drama “Dune” and for the James Bond film “No time to die”.
