Austrian director Michael Haneke scooped the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film with Amour, a moving portrayal of an elderly couple as they approach the end of their lives. Searching for Sugar Man, the true story of rock guitarist Sixto Rodríguez, who vanished into obscurity in the mid-70s only to be re-rediscovered working as a labourer, won Best Documentary Feature.

The two winners were among six nominated films supported by the MEDIA programme for cinema, which have received € 2 million in EU funding to date.

Michael Haneke’s Amour won the Foreign Language Film Oscar.
