(Official, July 2022)
Welcome to the first edition of the Personal Top Lists Challenge! We will spend the seventh month of 2022 discovering some of the most interesting personal top lists on iCM.
Ongaku (Kenji Iwaisawa, 2019)
The focus of this challenge will be on those personal lists that most likely will never become official on iCM because their creators are not celebrated sources but that nevertheless offer a valuable selection of films while reflecting their own interests, taste and personality.
Explore the interests and taste of the ICMF/iCM forum through their own personal top lists. Search for affinities.
- The challenge runs from Friday July 1st to Sunday July 31st (use your local time).
- Every participant (and the host) can nominate one personal top list* created by other ICMF/iCM member.
- Participants can watch films from any nominated top list.
- Rewatching is allowed.
- A feature film (at least 40 minutes) counts as one point.
- 80 minutes of short films or miniseries/TV episodes count as one point.
- Include year of release and top list name** when listing your viewings. Links to iCM are greatly appreciated.
- Do not edit your posts except for minor corrections.
- Fair play, please: no hit-and-run nominations, entire single speed watching, no top-rankers popping up in the last minute, etc.
* Only original iCM lists that consist of a personal selection of films are allowed. They may be lists submitted to ICMF polls, yearly top 10s, guilty pleasures, recent favourites, canons or anti-canons, views on a particular theme, genre favourites, etc.; but not lists made for statistical purposes, generic compilations, watchlists, filmographies, etc. In case of doubt, just ask.
** For the sake of simplicity, if they happen to be on several top lists pick only one.
This challenge springs from an original idea by beavis. Big thanks to him and all the voters that made it official.
