I pick one film per year which is my favourite. This should give a broad view of my tastes across the history of cinema. If there are years without films listed it is either because I haven't decided which film to put for that year, or I have not seen a film from that year.

I have seen a load of short cartoons from the early days of animation but I can't generally remember specific episodes. For this reason I have prioritised feature films over short cartoons, unless the toons were particularly memorable.

Years still needed: 1889, 1897, 1898, 1900, 1905, 1907, 1910, 1911, 1913, 1915, 1916, 1919, 1920, 1921, 1923, 1924, 1925, 1926, 1930, 1931, 1936, 1938
