The annual ICM Forum's Favorite Shorts for 2015 is here! Post an IMDB list of your favorite short films. An ICM list or a list of IMDB URLs will also be accepted. A list may be ranked, unranked, partially ranked, or group ranked. Please specify which or else I'll assume the list is ranked.

A short film is any short of 45 minutes or less. TV episodes that are part of an anthology show where the episodes are unrelated are allowed. TV episodes not part of an anthology show are not eligible.

The usual scoring system will be used with a half-life of 50. So for a ranked list the Nth movie receives 100 / 2 ^ ((N - 1) / 50) points.

Last year's list can be found here.

The deadline is March 1st.

TV episodes that are part of an anthology show where the episodes are unrelated are allowed.
Does this mean we can vote for episodes of Alfred Hitchcock Presents and Tales of the Unexpected?

:o
Then I can add about 100 titles to my list. I've seen several seasons of AH presents and most episodes are great.

A reminder for everyone: Rhapsody in Blue has its own IMDb entry, so don't forget to vote for it (it's the 3rd and the best segment of Fantasia 2000). I rewatched it yesterday and it's awesome.

If you haven't already seen it, here it is: http://vimeo.com/96242939

Don Hertzfeldt is also releasing a new short film that won at Sundance, called 'World of Tomorrow' and he is currently working on his second feature film called 'Antarctica'!

Yes, that's 'Back Beyond'.

I added 139 AH-presents episodes. I didn't know how to rank them, so I put them on the bottom unranked. So now my list is partly ranked:

1-161: Ranked
162-300: Unranked

Fixed. But as for the Leone doc, I've watched the condensed 20-minute version, so. :shrug:

this one was very hard to make!!
first because there are so many shorts and most of them are not distributed very much, so encountering them in the first place is a question of chance and secondly because I do not keep good track of those I have seen (I do check them since i started using ICM, but even then a lot of them don't have an ICM entry or even an Imdb entry!). Others have these same problem I notice, because more then with any other lists I think the cannonical working of movie lists becomes apparent, you see a lot of the same titles on everybody's lists... including an unendless stream of slapstick comedy and looney cartoons.

So I delved deep into memory to come up with as many of titles as possible of high quality that might have been overlooked
including also of course the obvious personal favorites and universal masterpieces. And then I tried to rank em too :) crazy

I dont have an imdb or icm list, just the imdb codes again... so, see the spoilers for
my personal ranked top100 favorite shorts!

Spoiler: click to toggle


hopefully someone can make an ICM-list of this for me, then I an also quickly scan which of these I might not have checked yet... :)

Yeah, but the whole thing is still under 45 minutes, so I'm comfortable including it. Have we disqualified it in previous years?
