:cheers: Only one that I had zero interest in so seems like a fun line-up. I've been putting off Mad God forever because I have to wait for my boyfriend so hopefully I can force him to watch it before the festival ends :folded:

Thanks everyone! Disappointed Ecstacy did not make the final line-up. Sp, so close! Regardless, what an exciting and varied list you came up with. Really surprised the only two animated films on the list ended up being the top vote getters, but both very much belong and should be hot topics in the main slate.

As a teaser, here's the Animation slate:
Spoiler
Cryptozoo [2021] https://www.imdb.com/title/tt13622118/
Kill it and Leave this Town (Zabij to i wyjedz z tego miasta) [2020] https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8387918/
Pompo: The Cinephile (Eiga daisuki Pompo-san) [2021] https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12439248/

On the main slate, the only issue I have is with New Order. I am not a fan of Franco, having After Lucia at 5 and Sundown at 6, I hope we get more than what the trailer suggests: half exploitive home invasion half proletarian Salo.

La Traversée was a slight disappointment but Adoration and Beyond the Infinite were really good. And I am really looking forward to the rest for first watch.

I got some bad news for you bud, that is what you're getting, with a bit of shock doctrine thrown in. I cheated a bit and started early. (Wanted to make sure I meet my commitment to see all the main slate films so no hanging around for me!!!). I think he had some fine lines to tread, like a vaulter in Olympic gymnastics, and he ended up landing with a foot outside the line exploitation wise. Having said that it did make me hyperaware of the invisible class boundaries yesterday when I was on a train. I think I've always been terrified by class systems which is why I've ended up outside of them. The downside is literally everyone identifies me as outside of their class group. It's mortifying when you feel the resentments and realize they all have safe languages for out group communication.

I don't know if it's too late to sign up as a juror?

Also, does it matter if I've seen a few of the films?

I can't remember how it works completely

Yes, the jurors closed the voting on Sunday, but you can still join in as an early juror!

It doesn't matter at all that you have seen some of the films, that just makes it more managable.

To be clear, there will be separate threads during the festival for your reviews, but y'all can talk about your anticipated films here (in this thread, not the programmers one please - we still have some work to do there). :)

As a programmer, I still haven't seen a lot of the films in this year's festival, and I think I'm most intrigued by Caught in the Net and Father, and most looking forward to Two of Us.

Are the Jurors thinking about dividing all the slates between them? From the general announcement thread it seems not. And I don't want to force anyone to do that. If it is nog possible to cover all slates in the end, like last year, then that is just the way things are... but it would be nice :)

Ok a quick tabulation of the jurors comments since the full festival line up was announced here is what slates they said they are probably watching:

pitchorneirda - Art, Euro
hurluberlu - Asia, Euro
mightysparks
flavo5000
outdoorcats - Art, LGBT, Africa
gunnar - Anim
DavidAConrad - Asia

With Mighty a lock for JBD most likely that only leaves 3 slates unaccounted for so far: Latin, Indie and Doc (which does have a challenge in December for any juror who happens to love being involved with the challenges)

Well with all going to plans every slate will see at least one juror representing it, except for documentary that is. As u said before there is a challenge in December which hopefully will influence a juror to pick those movies up and not let them be orphans.

I would like to point out, for anyone on the fence, the Documentary Slate involves the shortest time commitment of all the slates this year. :)

In the mix we have a 43 minute film, a 75 minute film and two that clock in at around the 90 minute mark. I haven't done the write-up for the Slate yet, but I can reveal that this is one of the slates that I am most pleased with this year, including four films from four different continents and in four vastly different documentaries styles. There's a bit of something in this slate for even the most casual of documentary viewers.

I'm especially pleased with the Documentary slate this year, varying from a personal essay on anorexia, a viscerally immersive tale of "home", a participatory look at how Europeans shoot Africa/Africans and a stunning b/w meditation on nature. Traditional, lazy talking-heads filmmaking is nowhere to be seen.

anyone know where Beauvais got this image from? (I'm watching Just Don't Think I'll Scream at the moment - I feel like a total film newb, I don't recognize any of the movies he's collaging). It's stop motion animation.

They're listed alphabetically according to language of country of origin. Unfortunately they are not all listed in the credits, as I have discovered with a lot of effort hehehe. Of the 264 films in the credits with IMDb listings (some of the films are non-theatrical educational so not on IMDb), none of them are animated. I'll provide my research when the festival opens hehe, but safe to say, at the moment, I still don't know what film that image originally came from.
