Around the World in 80 Films

The aim of the game is to try and watch 80 different films from around the world. I do understand that I might not get to 80 films but I’m damned well going to try my best. As this will be a challenge, there are a few rules to remember:

THE RULES: There are no rules! No there are rules otherwise it wouldn’t be a challenge…

-Countries only – no city stand ins

-Collaborative films between countries are allowed

-The Vatican City is not a country in this challenge, it would be included as part of Italy (just covering all bases)

-For the purposes of this challenge, England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are separate countries as each has its own industry.
