Best film per country (no order)by salvadoras | created - 28 Jun 2012 | updated - 5 days ago | Public
It includes only full length 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 full length feature film:
Monaco, Qatar, Tonga, Cook Islands, French Polynesia, New Caledonia, Bermuda, St Kitts & Nevis, Guadeloupe, St Martin, St Maarten, French Guiana, Madagascar, Comoros, Reunion, Mayotte, Benin, Togo, Central African Republic, Djibouti and Sao Tome and Principe.
*I'm not referring to: Cocos Islands, Christmas Island, Western Sahara, St Helena, Seychelles, San Marino, Guernsey, Jersey, Niue, Tokelau, Norfolk Island, Pitcairn Islands, Tuvalu, Federated States of Micronesia, Northern Marianas, Nauru, Palau, British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Anguilla, Montserrat, St Barthelemy, St Pierre and Miquelon, Bonaire, St Eustatius, Saba and Falkland Islands, because they don't have full length feature film at all. The same goes for Former North Yemen and Former South Yemen.
