Poll Board members, please tell me what's your favorite movie of 2020.
Tenet added to the list
1917 is released in 2019
It had a limited release on the 25 of December in USA in 11 theaters
1) I don't live in USA.
2) 99% of people even in USA couldn't attend the limited release.
For me, it is a 2020 film.
Paok. Can you please clarify your definition of how films may qualify as 2020 releases? There are several ways that can be defined. Are you talking about US theatrical release schedules? 2020 theatrical rules (due to COVID) only make things more complicated.
Cinephile has noted 1917 as an example (using its 2020 release schedule in certain countries that are not the US).
To Cinephile? 1917 is a 2019 film as defined by the Academy of Motion Picture and Sciences. IF this is the standard of this poll suggestion, it would be nice if it was written out thusly.
Paok? Can you please address this timely issue?
The IMDb year should be used I think. That's the only way to avoid different criteria depending on where in the world we live.

I have just 7 titles from 2020, I guess I am too much into 90s now. :D
Borat Subsequent Film
The Trial of the Chicago 7
Can you change my pick from Tenet to Été 85 (2020).
Not because Été 85 is better, but because I want to give more choices to the voters.
Your pick has changed
bring up my poll
The Christmas Chronicles: Part Two
Da 5 Bloods
I think that even in a normal year this would be in my top five. That said, if I had seen 'Never Rarely Sometimes Always' or one or two other films, this choice would probably not be nearly as easy.
You still can see 'Never Rarely Sometimes Always' as it's streaming free on HBO Max (with the paid subscription). I probably shouldn't needle. It's been on my list since it was placed on HBO Max back in April and I haven't gotten the nerve to start watching it.
I saw it about a month ago and it was exquisite. Paok, could I change my choice to Never Rarely Sometimes Always?
I saw 14 2020 films.
From those that have not been suggested my favorite was The Invisible Man
If someone else wants to take that film, then I propose a nice surprise in Mexican animation, but that won't get any votes since it barely was seen: La liga de los 5
I was thinking about nominating Children of the Sea (2019) as I have seen its premiere at the NYCIFF in early (prepandemic) 2020 (but to verify and look it up, that wasn't the North American premiere but the less impressive East Coast premiere. It's North American premiere was in Oct. 2019 in LA). So? That film is an honorable mention.
I'll gleefully nominate Soul (2020).
Additional honorable mentions:
Weathering with You (2019): 17 Jan 2020 (USA)
Ride Your Wave (2019): 19 February 2020
Fritzi: A Revolutionary Tale (2019): AnotherNEW YORK INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN'S FILM FESTIVAL
Onward (I) (2020)
The Vast of Night (2019)
The far too short, Burn the Witch (2020) clocking in at 63 minutes.
and finally, Palm Springs (2020).
Do you plan on updating your list Paok?
I got a chance to see Weathering with You (2019), rewatch, at the movie theater this year. Can you replace my Soul nomination with Weathering with You (2019)?
Paok, I'm sorry but may I change my choice from 'Da 5 Bloods' to Never Rarely Sometimes Always?
Thank you, in advance. : )
Paok, you missed my choice above, The Invisible Man I have seen 24 films now. But it remains my favorite among those not already in the list.
forget it, documentary,
How can we improve?
