  1. Hey Guys, Sorry for the confusion there. I've re-opened the survey for those of you who haven't voted. I'll leave it open until Friday, July 8th! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/D2R9BBW
  2. Hello all! As you've probably seen, voting for the 2017 top 25 films on Waking Up is officially closed! The Image staff are currently working to calculate those results; they should be ready by the end of the week. Thanks for your input, and your patience in a very busy season at Image! -Paul
  3. Hey guys, Paul here (despite Tyler's old handle). Thanks for your patience! The survey is now live: rank your top picks with a 5 and your lowest picks with a 1. Folks who have been a part of our community actively will have their votes weighted base on how often they've contributed to A&F, but anyone and everyone is welcome to participate. If you don't know a movie, do not rate it. We will close voting at noon PST on Wednesday, June 14th. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/D23V2D5 Go for it!
  4. Discussion, nomination, and voting for the 2017 Top 25 Films List. (May also include a Top 100 List, depending on community consensus.)
  5. Hi, all! Here's the final vote for the Top 25: rank your top picks with a 5 and your lowest picks with a 1. Folks who have been a part of our community actively will have their votes weighted based on how often they've contributed to A&F, but anyone and everyone is welcome to participate. If you don't know a movie, do not rate it. We will close voting at noon PST on Tuesday, April 26. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SD67ND2 Have at it!
  6. VOTING (ROUND 1): Films on Mercy

    Hi, all! The survey is now open: rank your top picks with a 5 and your lowest picks with a 1. Folks who have been a part of our community actively will have their votes weighted base on how often they've contributed to A&F, but anyone and everyone is welcome to participate. If you don't know a movie, do not rate it. We will close voting at noon PST on Thursday, April 14. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/F25HJ6Z Have at it!
  7. Hi all, I'm copying instructions from last year from J.A.A. Purves. I know that there's been some chatter about doing two rounds of voting on this list after the discussion period—once for a top 50 and a second time to narrow this to a top 25. Perhaps a separate thread should be made to discuss that process. So here is our Top 25 Films on Mercy Nominations Thread. For now, follow the same rules and nomination format from prior years. But this time, a few of the rules are subject to change and if you want to propose a change to see if it will get majority A&F support, then propose it in the Selection Process Discussion thread.This thread is for nominations and seconds ONLY; discussion and advocacy for your nominations should be posted in this separate thread. I would strongly encourage each of you not to just nominate films without any explanation for why you think they belong on the list. Part of the nominating process should include nominating the film and then going over to the discussion thread to explain why the film merits your nomination and our votes. Please do this.Nominations will be open until a date yet to be announced. The rules are as follows:1) Nominations must follow this format:Title:Director:Year:Language:IMDB Link:YouTube Link (a clip of/trailer for the film):Link to the A&F thread on the film (if there is one):2) Every nomination must be seconded before appearing on the ballot (some require thirds - see below). To second, simply reply to the nomination post with “Second.”3) Every A&F member can nominate up to 25 films.4) There is no limit on nominating films from the same director; however, only the top three vote-getters per director will be allowed on the final list.5) No films released after December 31, 2014 (TYLER EDIT: or is it 2015?) can be nominated. (Like last time, if there is a heavily advocated for exception, we’re open to allowing for it.)6) TV series of more than one season cannot be nominated.7) Miniseries and special TV-to-cinema works like Dekalog, which have appeared in theaters sometimes or in parts, are eligible for nomination; they must receive a third nomination to appear on the final ballot.8) Trilogies and series of films shall be considered as separate films unless:a. They were filmed at once by the same director and crew, e.g. Lord of the Rings;orb. The theme and plots are interwoven in such a way as to necessitate the watching of all films to complete an understanding of each, e.g. Three Colors.Trilogies and series nominated as a single work must also receive a third nomination to appear on the final ballot.
  8. Top 25 Films on Mercy: Please keep nominations and seconds only in the nominations thread. All discussion of the nominated films themselves should be posted here. *Note: Currently, there are no hard-and-fast rules about eligibility based on content - it’s up to YOU to advocate for what you believe fits this category. We believe the community of voters will make a wise decision about it when the times comes. That said, please think carefully about whether the film is really about what the community wants for an "Arts & Faith" list as opposed to a purely generic "top films" list that would be created on some other popular movie website. Also, your film being seconded does not relieve you of the duty to explain why your nominations interact with spiritual themes. You are taking a position on the merits of a film by nominating it.
  9. VOTING WILL CLOSE FEBRUARY 10. PLEASE ALSO NOTE: IN THE PAST, IF YOU CLICKED "SHOW RESULTS" BEFORE YOU VOTED, IT WOULD PREVENT YOU FROM VOTING. I don't want anyone to become unable to participate!
  10. Vote for the 2016 A&F Top List Theme!

    PLEASE ALSO NOTE: IN THE PAST, IF YOU CLICKED "SHOW RESULTS" BEFORE YOU VOTED, IT WOULD PREVENT YOU FROM VOTING. I don't want anyone to become unable to participate!
  11. VOTING WILL CLOSE ON FEBRUARY 3. (Due to the similar territory between some of these topics, we may run a secondary voting round between the top two contenders, especially if the vote is very close.)
  12. Top 25 list for next year?

    I just want to clarify that we at Image will support whatever the A&F community wants to do this year! We've got a beautiful new site to base a list or lists (with the goal of migrating the old ones as well) and plenty of intern support this winter. (Just don't forget to discuss what you want the list to result in, content-wise.)
  13. The winning titles are: 1. Rashômon (1950) 2. Hiroshima, Mon Amour (1959) 3. Vertigo (1958) 4. Wild Strawberries (1957) 5. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) 6. Three Colors: Blue (1993) 7. The Mirror (1975) 8. Blade Runner (1982) 9. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962) 10. Citizen Kane (1941) 11. How Green Was My Valley (1941) 12. Memento (2000) 13. The Tree of Life (2011) 14. 246 (2004) 15. Solaris (1972) 16. Last Year at Marienbad (1961) 17. The Sweet Hereafter (1997) 18. The Thin Blue Line (1988) 19. Certified Copy (2011) 20. 8 1/2 (1963) 21. The Manchurian Candidate (1962) 22. The Act of Killing (2012) 23. La Jetée (1962) 24. The Remains of the Day (1993) 25. Mulholland Drive (2001) All right, all films are up for grabs! We need a 2-3 sentence blurb for each film, very briefly describing the plot and highlighting what is special about the film. Jeremy Purves will be starting a thread to assign blurbs next. Please send these to Jeremy by February 16.

  15. On the Possibility of an A&F Top Albums List

    Hi Joel (& all!): Greg and I just spoke about this at some length. We are open to the idea that a group of people would offer up 1 or 2 albums each to the list of "25 from the past 25 years." There are few things we want to bring up: 1. It may not be fair to consider this a "Top 25" list, given that it's not subjected to the same democratic process as the others. We do think the result would be awesome, but wonder if it should be called something like, "25 Great Albums from the Past 25 Years." 2. We wonder if we could split the list into 2-4 chunks and feature a handful of albums at a time on Good Letters. Each post containing a link to the full list-in-progress (as it's unveiled) on our site. 3. We wonder if it's realistic to expect 25 separate people to volunteer? I think we've have more like 15 people write for past A&F lists. 3. We would need a volunteer leader--Joel?--to keep track of 1) who wants to volunteer, 2) what albums they want to write about (preventing duplicate reviews on the same album, or three people writing about the same band, and so on), and 3) collecting the mini-reviews. At Image, I could handle copyediting reviews and webizing them for the blog and/or site. I just want to be clear about what the Image staff can and can't accomplish. This sounds great and would need to be a highly collaborative project. What are your guys' thoughts? Warmly, TM
