About The Show

The Raw Footage Podcast is a film review show hosted by Colin Gazeley from Bath, England, where as soon as I come out of the cinema I record my raw, unedited thoughts about the film I've just seen. I then release these reviews in podcast form with only minor edits for clarity and excess background noise.

The basic philosophy of this show is that the initial impression you get of a film is often the most accurate one.


FLOS - Foreign Language Oscars '16

FLOS is a term I regularly use on my show, and it stands for Foreign Language Oscar Submission. One of the aims of this podcast is to watch as many of these films as possible.

Each year every country in the world has the opportunity to submit one film to the Academy which is primarily not in the English language. In 2016 there were 81 submissions and the running count of how many I have seen currently stands at 40. Below is a list of the 2016 FLOS's.

GREEN films I have seen and reviewed on the show, a note of which show features the review follows the listing.
BLUE films I had to see through extra-legal means and therefore do not have a review in the show.
Films marked * are the 5 actual nominees for the Oscar.
Films marked ^ are the 4 films which made the long-list for consideration but were not nominated.
