The 500 Film Challenge

Yes, you read it right, 500 Films in a year. Princess Kinoc is the brainchild of the project. From her introductory entry, the project was inspired by the movie Julie and Julia (2009) which was about a food blogger on her quest to cook every recipe in Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking (1961). If Ebert watched 450 films last 2009 according to his Yearend Reviews Book 2009 and Jay-r around 400 films, then I think it's doable. I've watched 200+ feature films last year excluding, of course, the many, many short films I've watched during weekends and holidays. So here are the rules for the challenge:

1 | Accept the dare by making a comment on this post or you can email me: Anyone with a blog is eligible.

2 | Make an introductory post using the beautiful Anna Karina picture above explaining the project. Link all the participants of the project in the post as shown below (scroll down).

3 | Start watching 500 films and write about each one of them. Short films, feature films and extra-long films are accepted. Miniseries are allowed i.e. Carlos (2010), The Decalogue (1988) but major series are not. As long as you watched them after you accepted the dare its okay. So you cannot include films you watched before you have officially accepted the dare.

4 | You cannot repeat a film. Of course, duh!

5 | The first one to finish the project will have a special prize (to be announced before the year ends).
