Can anyone help me with a question regarding the IMDb advanced search system

Can anyone help me with a question regarding the IMDb advanced search system ( https://www.imdb.com/search/title/ ). I recently discovered this function and I want to start watching the best movies of each year, however, I want to remove Indian movies from the movie lists and I couldn't find the option to delete them from the list.

Since July 2016 - https://www.imdb.com/user/ur68173442/?ref_=nv_usr_prof_2

Bonitao: I don't think there is currently a "NOT" function in the IMDb advanced search, not even as a workaround.

@ACT_1  is correct: adding an exclamation point before a search term excludes that term.

Here is an example search for 2018 that pulls all feature films with a minimum of 1,000 votes, a minimum of a 7.5 rating, and excludes films produced in India.

Feature Film, Released between 2018-01-01 and 2018-12-31, User Rating at least 7.5, Rating Count at least 1,000, Not India (Sorted by IMDb Rating Descending)

https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?title_type=feature&release_date=2018-01-01,2018-12-31&user_rating=7.5,&num_votes=1000,&countries=!in&sort=user_rating,desc

Thanks, ACT1 and Keyword Expert. I had not known that the ! (NOT) function was still working.
