LOS ANGELES, Calif. - The makers of three Golden Globe- and Oscar-nominated foreign films shared the secrets of their craft — and admiration for one another — at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's 10th annual Foreign Film Symposium.

Oscar-nominated Swedish filmmaker Lasse Hallstrom moderated the panel Saturday featuring "Kon-Tiki" directors Espen Sandberg and Joachim Roenning of Norway, "A Royal Affair" director Nikolaj Arcel of Denmark and Austrian director Michael Haneke, whose film "Amour" also earned Oscar nods for picture and director this week.

The five men spent 75 minutes discussing their approach to filmmaking during the program on the Los Angeles campus of Loyola Marymount University.

The 70th annual Golden Globe Awards will be presented Sunday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel and broadcast live on NBC.
