The Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film is one of the awards presented at the Golden Globes, an American film awards ceremony.

Until 1986, it was known as the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Film, meaning that any non-American film could be honoured. In 1987, it was changed to Best Foreign Language Film, so that non-American English language films are now considered for the Best Motion Picture awards. Additionally, this change makes American movies primarily in another language eligible for this award, including recent winner Letters from Iwo Jima and nominees Apocalypto and The Kite Runner.

Note that since the 1987 change in the criteria for this award, its eligibility criteria have been considerably broader than those for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. American films have never been eligible for this award, and even non-U.S. films had to have principal dialogue in an official (non-English) language of the submitting country until 2006.

Before 1974, the award was given only infrequently, and with several films being jointly honoured per year.

The most honored country in this category is United Kingdommarker, with seven films honored. The most honoured countries after 1987 are Spain and France.
