ICM Forum's Favorite Shorts (2016)

Posted Image

Welcome to the annual ICM Forum's Favorite Shorts poll. Post a link to an IMDB- or ICM-list with your favorite shorts here. Your list can be either ranked or unranked. Partially ranked is not allowed. I'll consider your list ranked unless specified otherwise.

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. In doubt please ask.

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.
Titles on an unranked list will get the average amount of points of all titles if that list was ranked.

Last year's list can be found here.

Countdown till deadline

My unranked list. I managed to stretch it to 150.

Don't forget to watch and vote for the beautiful Anything Can Happen by Marcel Lozinski. It's on the S&S documentary list.

No special reason. It's a work in progress anyway.

I think that is/was the limit Imdb uses to determine if something qualifies as a short.

On IMDb it's 44 minutes or less. I made it 45 for the first shorts poll because IMDb runtimes are sometimes slightly off, so I wanted to avoid excluding shorts that are right on the border. For the later shorts polls I guess people just reused the rules from the previous year.

I don't know what to do with Sherlock Jr. It's obviously a feature film according to imdb and wikipedia, but it's eligible (45 minutes) and i like it very much.

I so wish I had been taking notes on my favorite shorts ever since I started watching them by the hundreds via ICM lists. But I didn't. And I really feel it's absolutely hopeless for me to recall my favorites in any definitive way.

ICM Poll: Keep It Short

Last year I watched a lot of shorts for this poll. Since then I added new titles when I came across them. To reorder I rely on how much I remember from them.

If you gave an imdb rating you can always find them back by using "advanced search". Otherwise it's a lot of work indeed.

My short list:

PS: When making your list don't forget that IMDb's search engine often likes to swallow shorts that also fall into other categories, most importantly documentary, and also video.

Best way is to extract all your IMDB-ratings, sort them by runtime and select only 45 minutes and less. Still need to go through the ones without runtime.

I updated the OP. Please check if you are listed correctly and if it says "unranked" if you specified that.

Duplicates in the lists so far:

Perception de Ambiguity at #632 and #732: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0341011/
Perception de Ambiguity at #848 and #1091: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0780045/

Please correct them.
