Fiji has made its first bid to win an Academy Award by submitting The Land Has Eyes in the best foreign language film category, according to Screen International. In order to qualify, it was opened at the only multiplex in the Fijian capital Suva by Australian distributor Ronin Films. The film took a respectable $13,600 (£7,390) in its first week there.
This article also shows you how to put your name into a draw to be one of 300 fans who will win ringside seats for the Academy Award arrivals. 21,000 fans applied last year, so get your name in. You may be one of the first people in history to see a Fiji movie star in Hollywood. Sure beats the same old line up...
