The LIST That Started It All! Festival Mondial Du Film Et Des Beaux-Arts De Belgique - 1951
The movie list that started it all! The Festival Mondial du Film et des Beaux-Arts de Belgique in 1951 asked about 100 directors from around the world to vote for the best films of the medium's first half-century. A little more than 60 joined the fun and came up with this list. Each film appeared on at least five ballots with Battleship Potemkin coming out on top. Citizen Kane wouldn't make it to the top for another 10 years! Sight and Sound followed with its own list in 1952.
