(similar to the Sight & Sound Poll)
- You can vote for 10 films. Please no more or less. I assume that each of us has a Top Ten list or ten films in mind that are special, or because you always wanted to take part in the Sight & Sound Poll and put together ten nominations.
- I'm really very grateful, if we limit this poll to feature films, TV movies, TV mini-series, documentaries and short films. The following are therefore not eligible: TV series or individual TV episodes.
- Your ballot can be either ranked or unranked, but I will assume it's ranked unless otherwise stated. For ranked ballots it makes it easier if you use a numbered list.
Such a poll with only 10 nominations is of course more meaningful the more participants there are. So please join us.
Basically, the 10-film principle favours special or even controversial films. I'm fully aware of that. On the other hand, “film pearls” can attract a certain amount of attention. Let's start the game.
The scoring will not be quite the same as the "Sight & Sound Poll". It is very welcome if lists with a ranking are submitted. This means that the 1-point rule does not apply here. In order to get a little closer to the character of the “Sight & Sound Polls”, the difference between places 1 and 10 should not be so big. Therefore the scoring will look like this:
Top Ten list with a ranking:
- Place 1 = 7 points,
- Place 2 & 3 = 5 points,
- Place 4 – 6 = 4 points,
- Place 7 -10 = 3 points
- Each film receives 4 points
This poll will close on Friday, December 22, at 11:59 PM Anywhere on Earth (AOE, UTC -12).
For comparison, the following time zones:
Berlin, Paris, Amsterdam (Germany, France, Netherlands) UTC +1
London (United Kingdom) UTC +0
New York (United States) UTC -5
San Francisco (United States) UTC -8
You may revise or add a ballot anytime until the poll is indicated closed in the subject header.
This is my first poll. I hope I don't make too many mistakes.
