Russian Guild of Film Critics - Best Russian Films

The Russian Guild of Film Critics is a Russian organization of professional film critics. Naturally, its headquarters are in Moscow. A member of FIPRESCI since 1999, the guild critiques Russian and Foreign films. Beginning in 1998, the guild began conferring annual awards in several categories. The awards were called "The Golden Ram" from 1998 to 2004, then, beginning in 2005, the name was changed to "The White Elephant"


Note that this is a combination of the list of best films 1908-1957 and 1957-2000, plus the winning films each year from 1998 onwards from their annual awards (so it isn't a straight-forward ranked list).

1-25 is ranked 1908-1957, 26-100 is the ranked 1957-2000, and 101-112 are the 'Best Film' winners for the awards ceremonies which took place 1998-2010.
