Cinema History Project

My largest movie-watching project so far; I will try to watch at least one film from every year from 1900 to 2000 in chronological order. 

I wanted to try this in order to get a further understanding of film history, and how the medium has evolved over the years. 

I will be listing the films here as I go along - adding notes to the entries whenever it makes sense.

Started: 8th of May 2022
- One year update: 100 films watched (reached 1926)

Films and shorts watched per decade:
 - 1900’s: 25
 - 1910’s: 20
 - 1920’s: TBA
 - 1930’s: TBA
 - 1940’s: TBA
 - 1950’s: TBA
 - 1960’s: TBA
