The Zone of Interest is a 2023 historical drama film written and directed by Jonathan Glazer, co-produced between the United Kingdom and Poland.

The Zone of Interest premiered at the 76th Cannes Film Festival on 19 May 2023 to acclaim. It won three BAFTAs (including Film not in the English Language) and was nominated for three Golden Globe Awards. At the 96th Academy Awards, it received five nominations, including for Best Picture, and two wins, for Best International Feature and Best Sound.
