We'll do a top 150.
That's insane. I can't believe that we weren't collectively able to find enough films to make a decent top 200. :( In fact, this might be the only occasion in which a list that I have submitted for a poll has been longer than the poll results. :shrug: How many points did film #200 get?

Kinda wish I’d made a list now, just felt hard to do when I don’t pay attention to or care about directors, let alone their genders... maybe next time. Need to stop being so lazy and get making lists.

We'll do a top 150.
That's insane. I can't believe that we weren't collectively able to find enough films to make a decent top 200. :( In fact, this might be the only occasion in which a list that I have submitted for a poll has been longer than the poll results. :shrug: How many points did film #200 get?
159 points.

There were 50 voters. 27 had lists with under 75 films, 35 under 100, 43 under 110. Only 3 had more than 140. I think it's the short length of the lists. There are some interesting pickings down below though.

159 points. I guess that means a lot of films with only 2 votes in the top 200? If that's the case, I can't blame you for the capping the results at 150.

And that means that the list that I submitted was the longest. :ermm: I wonder why the lists were so short. Maybe because it takes a bit of research to double check what films are and are not directed by women? This makes me want a decent Official female directors lists more than ever. And a decently sized one too. Surely there has to be a well sourced and reliable top 200 or 250 out there somewhere...

2nd longest. insomnius' list was 260. There weren't that many 2 vote films in the 150-200 range, I'll post them after the results, but I'm conservative with list length. I think making a list for this is harder than most genre or country lists but also outside the top many of these films are underseen.

Yay, I'm excited to see these results. I feel very positive that we can produce a much better list that either of those proposed for officialdom last year.

I only make lists with 10-8 votes, so the length are pre-defined by that. I have a lot of 7s, but I can't fill up my list with them.

Still one of my longer lists I have here on this site
164 Nordic
100 Comedy
88 UK
76 Documentary
67 Women
62 Fantasy
55 Action
52 Horror
35 Musical
34 War
25 Japan
25 Road Movie
23 Canada
23 LGBTIQ+
23 Sci-Fi
19 German
11 Western
09 Middle East
06 Iberia
05 Latin American and Caribbean
04 China++
02 South Korea

I simply don't vote for movies that I don't want to be in the final list. And 7 isn't noteworthy enough.

Surely it is understandable that the lists are of short length due to historical factors. I have not seen enough films to even make a proper top 50, but insomnius list looks appetizing & I'll try and check some of those films out.

There are many more woman around the world making films today than ever before (I suggested 20 very good contemporary ones I've seen in the past 6 months in the nomination thread), but they don't all get the attention they deserve, and a lot of guys aren't really interested in the feminine touch, at least when it comes to movies.

Fuck. I missed Selva when I went through this list. Also realized that I forgot to update my list to include High Life.

Surprisingly no. Deborah Stratman is just fucking awesome. Her film The Illinois Parables was getting somewhat of a following here.

One additional reason why the lists aren't longer might be that there aren't imdb gender filters, or are there? Like there are for decades and genres. Makes it more easy to miss stuff. I already saw a movie I missed: American Splendor. Added it now at #28.
