  4. CFB's 100 Important Directors of Animated Short Films's icon

    CFB's 100 Important Directors of Animated Short Films

    Favs/dislikes: 32:1. 100 Important Directors of Animated Short Films: Background This list of 100 important directors of animated short films was assembled in late 2008 to serve as a complement to “Brief Encounters,” a proposed list of 250 great short films (both animated and live-action) which was to be developed by the folks at the They Shoot Pictures, Don’t They? website. Unfortunately, that 250-film list is in limbo, leaving our list without a home. The “100 Important Directors of Animated Short Films” list is not intended to be comprehensive. These are simply 100 directors whom we feel are important and deserving of increased recognition by film lovers. For each director, we selected three “highly recommended” movies. In addition, we included a category of “TSPDT 250 Greatest Shorts” to highlight any of these directors’ films which were tentatively slated to place on the abandoned Brief Encounters list. This project was facilitated by Lee Price (lee-109) on the IMDb Classic Film message board. Project team: Lee Price, Robert Reynolds (Illtdesq), Jorge Didaco (jdidaco), Bill Kamberger (bkamberger), and Rob Tomshany (RobT-2), with additional input from animation fans on the IMDb Classic Film message board.

  8. Top 250 Most-Acclaimed Short Films of All Time's icon

    Top 250 Most-Acclaimed Short Films of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 102:1. I compiled this list from many different polls, lists, and awards, using a weighted point system to rank the shorts. I'm defining short as any film with a runtime of 45 minutes or less. This list focuses more on animation than the [url=]Brief Encounters[/url] list. It includes many acclaimed animated shorts which are missing from Brief Encounters, most notably The Man Who Planted Trees and Ruka. Missing from IMDb: The Magic Fox (1982) (it would've been ranked #132)

  17. James A. FitzPatrick Traveltalks's icon

    James A. FitzPatrick Traveltalks

    Favs/dislikes: 6:0. James A. FitzPatrick's condescending journey around the world . Although quite hokey and often terribly racist ("Those natives have no understanding of a higher power," Australia is a "White Man's Paradise"), these shorts provide priceless glimpses of a world long past (especially his Pre-WWII films). It is amazing to see the rapid modernization that has taken place within such a short span of the 20th century. Although he constantly hammers in the superiority of the USA, FitzPatrick is always reluctant to leave his destination - and often it isn't hard to see why!
  18. Japanese Anime Classic Collection's icon

    Japanese Anime Classic Collection

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. "This four-DVD set of vintage anime presents 55 titles from the 1920s and 1930s, the Golden Age of Japanese silent film." 1-12: Disc 1 13-26: Disc 2 27-40: Disc 3 41-52: Disc 4 Missing from IMDb: Shojoji no Tanuki-bayashi Ban (Disc 3) (the list includes both the benshi version and original version, but there is only 1 IMDb entry) Mabo no Daikyoso (Disc 4) Dobutsu-mura no Daisodo (Disc 4) Note: I am assuming that Deko-bô no jitensha ryokô is the same as Dekobo no Jidosha Ryoko (jitensha is probably just a misspelling).
  19. Kenneth Anger Filmography's icon

    Kenneth Anger Filmography

    Favs/dislikes: 12:0. Kenneth Anger (born Kenneth Wilbur Anglemeyer; February 3, 1927) is an American underground experimental filmmaker, occasional actor and author. Working exclusively in short films, he has produced almost forty works since 1937, nine of which in particular have been grouped together as the "Magick Lantern Cycle", and form the basis of Anger's reputation as one of the most influential independent filmmakers in cinema history. His films variously merge surrealism with homoeroticism and the occult, and have been described as containing "elements of erotica, documentary, psychodrama, and spectacle." Anger himself has been described as "one of America's first openly gay filmmakers, and certainly the first whose work addressed homosexuality in an undisguised, self-implicating manner", and his "role in rendering gay culture visible within American cinema, commercial or otherwise, is impossible to overestimate", with several being released prior to the legalisation of homosexuality in the United States. He has also focused upon occult themes in many of his films, being fascinated by the notorious English occultist Aleister Crowley, and is a follower of Crowley's religion, Thelema.
  20. KORT!'s icon


    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. KORT! ("short" in Dutch) gives a mix of both beginners/young and more experienced/established screenwriters/filmmakers the chance to make short (stand-alone) fiction films. The films will be screened at the Dutch Film Festival, then online and a year later on television during the so-called evening of the short film. The NTR (a Dutch public broadcaster), the Dutch Film Fund, the Dutch Cultural Broadcasting Fund and the Co-production Fund Domestic Broadcasting facilitate the production of these short fiction films. Shorts remarkably not included in the IMDb: Rat (Roel Boorsma & Berend Boorsma) Salt-battle (Ron Termaat) 11:59 (Johan Kramer) Dialoogoefening (Esther Rots) De laatste dag (Saskia Diesing) Ruwe honing (Annick Vroom) Salto Mortale (Vincent Schuurman)
