The ceremony takes place at the BFI Southbank in central London on Tuesday November 15 and will be broadcast on BBC4 on Sunday November 20.



Channel controller Richard Klein said: "As the home of arts and culture, BBC4 provides a crucial platform for foreign-language film. We are excited once again to be presenting the World Cinema Awards and celebrating the diverse range of international cinema available in the UK."



A longlist of around 200 films was reduced to five contenders, with the eventual winner to be selected by a team of experts.



The shortlist includes Spanish director Pedro Almodovar's The Skin I Live In, which stars Antonio Banderas and premiered at this year's Cannes Film Festival.



Other nominees are:



:: Of Gods And Men



:: Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives



:: A Separation



:: Le Quattro Volte
