Best film per country (no order)by salvadoras | created - 28 Jun 2012 | updated - 4 days ago | Public
It only includes feature films because documentaries, animations and short length are different categories and can't be compared all together.
I would be thankful if someone could help me find these countries that have, at least, one feature film:
Monaco, Qatar, Northern Mariana Islands, St Martin, Reunion, Mayotte and Western Sahara.
*I'm not referring to: St Helena, Cocos Islands, Christmas Island, San Marino, Guernsey, Jersey, Niue, Tokelau, Norfolk Island, Pitcairn Islands, Tuvalu, Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, British Virgin Islands, Turks and Caicos, Dominica, Anguilla, Montserrat, St Barthelemy, St Pierre and Miquelon, Bonaire, St Eustatius, Saba and Falkland Islands, because they don't have feature film at all. The same goes for Former North Yemen and Former South Yemen.
