The Rules
The rules for voting are as follows. Please choose the film(s) you would like to see inducted. A minimum of one film and a maximum of five films can be chosen. Please place your favourite choice first and so on until reaching number 5. For example

Ridley Scott
1. Blade Runner
2. Alien
3. Thelma and Louise
4. Gladiator
5. Black Hawk Down

The top film will get 5 pts down to 5th film which will receive 1 pt. Please don’t be inhibited to vote. You don’t have to have had to watch an entire director’s filmography to vote. If you have seen a film by this director that you feel should enter The Hall of fame please vote. Do not vote for films you think are mediocre or for films you dislike. Any film, be it a short, experimental film can be nominated. The film must appear in the director’s IMDb filmography. If it is an anthology film then the segment of the film directed by the filmmaker must be chosen rather than the entire film.

The voting will stay open for one week starting 4pm GMT Wednesday and ending Tuesday 4pm GMT. The winner will be announced and inducted into the Hall of Fame list which you can find here.
This is as much about discussing the director’s work as it is about voting. So the more comments we get the more productive this project is going to be.
