The schedule will be based on the films you nominate and the challenges of the month. There will be 11 1000<400 films and 39 500<400 films on the final schedule. All previous FotWs are ineligible to be on the schedule again.
There will be two different nomination periods in this thread. The first set of nominations will be for films on the 500<400 list. The second set of nominations will be for films on the 1000<400 list. Any film that does not receive at least one nomination will not be considered for the FotW (#251-#300) schedule.
The first nomination period will begin now and the last day to submit your nominations will be on October 18th. You may update your nominations throughout that time. The second nomination period will begin after the 1000<400 films are revealed.
In order to submit your nominations, you can submit one of the following in this thread:
1. ICM list
2. IMDB list
3. post the text of the icm title of each film
4. post the ICM or IMDB url of each film
Each nomination/list will contain at least a minimum of 1 film and up to a maximum of 50 films. Each list will be treated as unranked and each film will receive the same amount of points (1 point). If you submit a list with more than 50 films, I will only count the first 50 eligible films. I will exclude all ineligible films when reading the lists. You can nominate films that you have seen and films that you have not seen. You may promote eligible films to be FotWs in this thread.

ICM Forum's 500<400 2018 RESULTS!: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3978
How the future schedule will look:
Assuming any Iberian Peninsula films are nominated, the Iberian Peninsula film that receives the most nominations will be the FoTW #251.
Assuming any LGBTIQ+ films are nominated, the LGBTIQ+ film that receives the most nominations will be the FoTW #252.
Three of the films for November will each represent one of the three following challenges: Nordic Nations; Film Noir; Criterion + Masters of Cinema.
Three of the films for December will each represent one of the three following challenges: Canada; Documentary; Forum Lists.
The official challenges for 2019 will also each be represented by a FotW.
The remaining weekly films will be determined by the highest number of nominations. If there are no nominated films that fit the theme for a challenge, then that challenge will be ignored on the FotW schedule and will be replaced by a film that receives the highest number of nominations.
The months of November - September will each contain one 1000<400 film per month. The 1000<400 film may be used to represent a challenge.
I am not an expert on all the films and all the challenge themes, so it is possible that we can discuss in here if a film fits a challenge when determining the schedule.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask them in here.
