Voting Rules:
- You must watch all 4 films before you vote.
- To vote, rank the 4 films from most favorite to least favorite. (note: you're ranking the individual films, not the countries)

Voting deadline = Jun 17th
Countdown till deadline

The countries that end at 1st and 2nd place proceed to the next round. The ranking of the match will be decided using these rules:
- Ranked by lowest average ranking.
- In case of a tie between two movies, head-to-head determines the winner (how many people thought A>B and how many thought B>A).
- In case there's still a tie after the previous rule or there is a tie between three or four movies, most #1-votes determines the winner.
- Still a tie? Fewest #4-votes determines the winner.
- Still a tie? The match will have a 3 day extension (except when the tie is only between #3 and #4).
Here's a quick summary of how the tournament works
We start with 48 films from 48 countries. Each country has a manager who determines which movie will be watched. In the first round the countries are divided into 12 groups of 4. From each group the countries that end up at #1 and #2 proceed to the next round. In the 2nd round the 24 remaining countries will be divided into 8 groups of 3. The managers pick a new movie. The winner of each group proceeds to the next round. The final 8 countries compete one-on-one in the quarter finals (with a new movie of course) and so on till the final.

This was nearly a two-doc round, but I hesitated nominating a doc just for that reason. All things being equal, it seems most forum members prefer fiction films to docs, so it's an uphill climb.

Nope. I just think it's a masterpiece and I genuinely don't understand why everyone doesn't love it.

But let's discuss this after the round is finished (I'm very well willing to). I shouldn't have posted this comment in the first place. I don't want to influence the ratings by a premature discussion.

Don't think I'm going to make it for this match either. Haven't seen any of the four films left, and I don't feel like bingewatching. Only seen 4 films so far this month. :O
