Films of the Early 20th Century: Bonus Films (2021 edition)

Post by Petri »

I open this thread although the 18xx-1920 poll is still on.

So just like previous year we will have a bonus round

Every person that has voted in the first round gets the opportunity to select two films. You may select any film from 18**—1949 that hasn't qualified yet to proceed to the next round. An overview of the selected films can be found below in this thread. The chosen movies will be automatically added to the final poll. You can notify me which film you would like to be added through a private message or just post in this thread.

The deadline is on 31st of May. After this bonus round, we will start the final round.

If you want to pick a movie from 18**—1949 (that has a chance to qualify otherwise) you can make a conditional select (movie x from year pre 1920 and if it qualifies then movie y). We all know that movies like Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari (The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari), Intolerance or Broken Blossoms will be in the final for sure so there's no need to mention them.
