2021: 52 Weeks, 54 Different Countries

Furthering my attempts to broaden the diversity of the media I partake of, and that which I support, I'm also going to try to watch at least one film (including shorts) from a different country for each week of the year.

(I'm doing "54" because the USA and UK are basically gimmes, but my pedantic nature recognizes that they are indeed countries whose films I have partaken of.)

Countries listed in notes. Each film only counts for one country. Which country a film is "from" is actually rather murky in many cases, so for this exercise, it's going to be what I say it is.


Just for fun, I'm going to keep track of which countries I hadn't seen…
