Time for some more nominations from my side!!
12 checks and 156 imdb votes, but it is on MUBI now, so that hopefully soon changes
I saw it at Gent, it was supposed to have launched at the previous IFFR but couldn't due to lockdown
the director gave a funny but down to earth Q and A, very thoughtfull but light, just like the movie
it has got aspects of minimalism, but the drama is still very much heartfelt, and makes the movie all the better. The setting and the relationship are just very nice. I think this should be a very allround likable movie for the LGBTQ section with the thoughtfull, laidback and minimalist approach lifting it way up above the average
2 checks and 11 imdb votes, which isn't going to change unless we make it change. I've been catching up on Fabrizio Ferraro's work in aticipation of his latest one, which I caught last wednesday at the IFFR. This one played there previously and he makes them as part of his "unwanted" series, but the movies can also be watched seperately. This is on the short side with 60 minutes, but the cinematography lifts it up to "must nominate" status for me. His work is slow and cryptic, hard to describe and recommend, so this is very much a blind shot, but I hope the art house people are going to love this as much as I now do.

2 checks and 17 imdb votes, these essay-istic weird arthouse documentaries are an acquired taste it seems... or a very well hidden kind of gem
This one started not that promising, but kept building and building and in the end had me completely intrigued and won over
enough to make me nominate it and see how well it might do. the Locarno stamp on it feels like a seal of approval to me, but I might be losing most of you there
And heck, because it is LatAm, and I want enough variety to choose from for that section: this is a small movie I did not outright love, but I am very intrigued by it and curious about response here... it might do absolutely nothing... but then again it might just hit somebody in the right way, like it kinda did me
with 4 checks and 31 votes the slightly more well known of this frog double bill I got going here. A fiction film that could be sold as a documentary, from a director who tries to go for that realness and for people at the margins of society, and sometimes below those. I really like sallitt's write-up of this one on Letterboxd, he kinda hits it on the head.
