Spanish director Pablo Berger's "Blancanieves" and "Gravity" from Mexico's Alfonso Cuaron will vie for the Cesar Award for best foreign film, the French film academy said Friday.

"Blancanieves" and "Gravity" will compete at the gala to be held Feb. 28 at the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris against such movies as Woody Allen's "Blue Jasmine" and "Django Unchained" by Quentin Tarantino.

Also seeking the prize will be the Italian production "La Grande Bellezza" by Paolo Sorrentino, and the Belgian films "Dead Man Talking" by Patrick Ridermont and "Alabama Monroe" by Felix Van Froeningen.

At the last Cesar Awards, the prize for best foreign film went to "Argo" by Ben Affleck, which went on to take the Oscar in Hollywood for best picture. EFE
