  1. Filmography of World History's icon

    Filmography of World History

    Favs/dislikes: 40:0. Global in scope and a practical tool for students and teachers of history, Deanne Schultz's "Filmography of World History: A Select, Critical Guide To Feature Films That Engage The Past" includes description and analysis of over 300 historical films. A companion to Grant Tracey's "Filmography of American History," this critical reference book selects movies that represent aspects of world history from the middle ages through the twentieth century. These films adopt as their subject a wide range of historical events, people and societies of Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe and Canada, and Latin America. Over half of the entries provide extended analysis of the historical interpretation the film brings to the screen. "Filmography of World History" argues for the potential of feature films to teach us about the past and its reconstruction in academe and popular culture. The book provides several listings of the films, the one shown here is the cross referenced list by time periods. These are divided as followed on this ICM list: 1 - 19 Medieval (c. 600-1500) 20 - 50 Early Modern (c. 1500 - 1800) 51 - 95 Nineteenth Century (1801 - 1900) 96 - 286 Twentieth Century (1901 - 2000) 287 - 292 Contemporary Note: I have ordered the list chronologically by the years the films deal with within these groups using the years the author has provided. In cases such as WW2 films that deal with the same years, these are ordered alphabetically within these years. For more detail about the specific years and regions of each movie, check out the book and/or download this excel file I made: [url]http://we.tl/vO29n6ik2d[/url]

    Favs/dislikes: 17:0. Below are the films that have won over five "industry awards," defined as those awards selected by professionals in the movie business.

  6. Montreal World Film Festival - Grand Prix des Amériques's icon

    Montreal World Film Festival - Grand Prix des Amériques

    Favs/dislikes: 9:0. The Montreal World Film Festival (WFF) (French: le Festival des Films du Monde or FFM), founded in 1977, is one of Canada's oldest international film festivals and the only competitive film festival in North America accredited by the FIAPF (although the Toronto International Film Festival is North America's only accredited non-competitive festival). The public festival is held annually in late August in the city of Montreal in Quebec. Unlike the Toronto International Film Festival, its counterpart in (prominently) English-speaking Canada, the Montreal World Film Festival focuses on various kinds of films from all over the world, while the former features not just international films, but also more of a focus on Canadian films (including Quebec) and other North American films.
  7. Around the World in 80 Films (OUP)'s icon

    Around the World in 80 Films (OUP)

    Favs/dislikes: 8:0. Michael Wood's list from 'Film: A Very Short Introduction' - part of the highly regarded series from Oxford University Press. "The following list is not arbitrary, since there is substantial agreement about the importance of these works. But it leaves out a large number of very good films, and I offer it to readers only as a set of suggestions, chances of exciting journeys in the world of cinema and the cinema of the world."
