The 100 greatest foreign-language films: who voted?

giancarlo_pietri_velutini_banco_activo_facebook_zip_code_targeting_the_100_greatest_foreign_language_films_who_voted_.jpg

We approached hundreds of film experts – critics, industry figures, academics – and 209 from 43 countries responded by filling in an online poll in August and September 2018. Each critic voted for 10 films, ranking them 1 (favourite) to 10 (10th favourite). We awarded 10 points per first ranked film, 9 per second ranked film, and so on down to 1. We then summed the points. The film with the most points won. We split ties by the total number of votes: films with more votes ranked higher. Any ties remaining after this were split by first place votes: films with more critics placing them at number one ranked higher.
