Regarding which countries to include: I think we should be consistent with other Chinese lists. Most of them include HK and Taiwan, and I don't think any of them include Singapore or Malaysia. I guess Macau and Tibet should be included as well, but I can't think of any films from those regions that are likely to get votes.

The most known Tibetan films are The Cup, Mountain Patrol, Himalaya, Samsara (2001) and one of my favourite movies, Travellers and Magicians. There is the money issue though as they only list the language as Tibetan so there does not seem to be any 'true' Tibetan films.

I updated the OP. 12 lists so far. Please check if you're listed correctly and it says that it's unranked if you stated so.

beavis, check your list. I've put it on IMDb.

Kekexili: Mountain Patrol should definitely be eligible. It's on both the Golden Horse and the dGenerate list.

I've seen Travellers and Magicians, but I didn't know it was Tibetan. I thought it was from Bhutan.

I never had a close relationship to chinese cinema, always viewing both Taiwan and Hong Kong as stronger, though lately the 5th generation started really winning me over. I'll start compiling my list, but in comparison with most other known cinema nations I am quite the novice.

Doesn't help that I never really cared for Kung Fu films.

Does Xich Lo count? Always considered that to be a Vietnamese film.

Personally I am extremely strict. Only allowing the first country mentioned on imdb, as the main producer (unless I know for a fact that is was a dual effort, 50/50, 33/33/33 etc)

Xich Lo do have Hong Kong producers, but they are listed 3rd. So I wouldn't add it, but it may be eligible to your definition.

Some go even broader, but that is another discussion.

Ran into Y˘kihi and Looper as well. Don't think either one really fits the bill for me. My Blueberry Nights is iffy, not sure about that one.

Woah, I have actually only seen 33 films from China, excluding 10 co-productions including The Last Emperor.

72 from Taiwan, again excluding 10 co-productions, some of them the same. Probably an overlap of about 10 films as well.

30 from Taiwan, excluding 5 co-productions, but many overlaps.

0 from Macao.

Also, a bit silly as Wong Kar-wai and Tsai Ming-liang are among my favorite directors, while none of the others can claim that yet. It doesn't help that no matter how hard I try or how many films I see I just can't get into Hou.

My list so far: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls069654109/?publish=publish

Doesn't seem logical indeed. It's Vietnamese.

(I'll remove it from my own list. :whistling: )

*Can bump these two off of my list if Himalaya and Travelers And Magicians are allowed
There's no list length limit so even if they're allowed you can have them on the list, or add more if you want.

Cinewest, please make an IMDb-list out of those. Or if you can't do that, post a list of movie-IMDb-urls here and I will make the list for you. As PA said, you can choose for yourself how long you will make the list. Adding more titles won't affect the points of the ones above.

Hello, i'm a newbie here (been lurking for quite some time) and i wanted to participate in this one, but i don't understand what "Each nominee can only be named once (of course)" means, is it that i cannot nominate movies already nominated by others?, or i can't nominate a movie twice?

sorry if bad english

No, it just means you can't put a movie twice on your list.
On IMDb it's possible to have a list that contains the same movie multiple times. Of course that would be cheating. Only vote for a movie once.

Welcome to the forum! Thanks for participating!

Yeah, I think I counted one of the links that isn't a personal list in the first page as a list because I was skimming too fast.
