The top Foreign Film Vote Returns (and there was much rejoicing) - Deadline is October 7th, always has been, anybody who thinks it will be delayed like every list in existance is a fool. a darned fool

Recommended Posts

Ok, so we have a very international membership with a lot of international tastes. Therefore it is about time for an international countdown. 

 

The rules for eligibility are simple. 

 

* Must be a foreign production

* Must be (predominantly) in a foreign language 

 

As with everything, there will be caveats, quirks and folks that just love asking nitpicky questions, so these are the ones that I have considered so far...

 

English Language films by foreign directors and studios are NOT eligible. (e.g. No Snowpiercer)

Foreign Language films made by the Hollywood system are NOT eligible (e.g. No Passion of the Christ)

Animated films, where the original Dub is in a foreign language Are eligible (e.g. Porco Rosso is allowed)

Foreign Language films by a foreign film industry directed by an English Speaker Are eligible (e.g. Raid is allowed)

Films made in an English Speaking nation but that are in a foreign language, by speakers of that language are eligible (I dunno any example, let's assume there is some great Welsh Language film out there somewhere, I believe something Canadian made the list last time out) 

 

Those are all the outlier examples that currently spring to mind. But as always. ask any questions in thread :) 

 

I am not committing to a list length until I see the number and depth of lists sent in. Like if I get 12 lists covering say 150 different films, I'll make it a top 25. If I get 37 lists that span 512 different films, then I'll do a top 100. 

 

Tentative Deadline is September 24th 

 

Spoiler

Scoring in spoilers:

 

Inspired by Panda's most recent countdown, the scoring will be as thus: 

 

List your films first in order on which country receives the most nominations. 

Then assign each country a colour not found in the rainbow. 

From September 26th, a different colour will be reveal daily until every colour has been chosen. 

a film will score points equal to Ordinal order colour was revealed multiplied by number of letters in the UK English spelling of the colour written as  percentage of the runtime in minutes.

 

(Will insert real scoring here later) 

 

Real scoring 

1st - 50

2nd - 45

3rd - 40

4-5th - 36

6-7th - 32

8-10th - 28

11-15th - 25

16-20th - 22

21-25th - 20

26-30th - 18

31-35th - 16

36-40th - 14

41-45th - 12

46-50th - 10

51-60th - 8

61-70th - 6

71-80th - 4

81-90th - 2

91-100th - 1

 

Be on 3 lists or more - 30 point bonus

This is also my chance to atone for dragging out my last list reveal a little too long, by keeping this one down to the traditional breezy weeks and embracing silliness.

Oh and for the love of Tyr, please include a nation and a year so it is easier to pair up votes by people using the English title and those using the foreign title.

I am also confused on the voting method. 

 

Would I submit like this:

 

1. Persona, 1966 (Sweden)

2. The Green Ray, 1986 (France)

3. The 400 Blows, 1959 (France)

Just list films in order of how much you like them. 

 

It just helps me to get enough info that I don't confuse multiple films oe split votes for the same film over different names for it.

OKay, to add a  bit of random silliness and fun into the equation early on, I am gonna do a thing. I will pick a couple of people who send in lists of 25 films or more and they will will a random DVD/Bluray (depending on availability of one of the films on the eventual top 100 list. 

 

(This may fall apart depending on what nations I find myself having to post to :) )
