I’ll be working on this periodically

I’m trying to only pick films that seem significantly indigenous to the region. I’m just listing one film per region for now.

I’m going to start changing how I do this. From now on, mostly when I say “by region” I will be referring to countries. I will mostly be referring only to current countries. In most cases where a country previously did not exist then I will still consider films that were made in the region currently claimed by the country to still be considered a film made in that region. For example, films made in Czechoslovakia in the region that is now a part of the Czech Republic will be considered as films made in the Czech Republic.

Also, if you are interested, here’s my list of films from different regions that I want to watch
