In 2011, Arcadia magazine asked 81 critics and filmmakers to vote for the greatest Latin American films. This list includes all films that received at least 2 votes. The ballots are available on Arcadia's website. See this spreadsheet for the vote counts.

Arcadia published the top 25, but some of the vote counts are incorrect, so the order is slightly different from this list (I counted the votes myself). They also removed the Spanish films, but I included them.
