Film Awards from Countries Outside the United States

There are 25 different countries represented here, as well as two pan-continental film awards.  I tried to track down any country that had had a regular film awards process for more than the last few years. 

While doing this I found that both Wikipedia and IMDB are a mess in regards to some of their entries (especially Wikipedia).  Where possible I verified the lists presented here on the web pages of those country’s film associations, but since I don’t speak dozens of foreign languages, I was not always able to do this.  I have noted in some of the spreadsheets where lists may be off a little.  If you have a definitive source for one of these and it differs from what I have here, please let me know in the comments.

It was a lot of work doing this, but on the plus side, after transcribing and translating these lists I now have a 5-10 word vocabulary in a couple dozen languages.

Because there were so many of them I did not embed the spreadsheets directly into this page.  Instead I embedded links to the spreadsheets.  By clicking on them you will be able to see/download the ones you want.  For all of these, by placing a “1” in the “Seen?” column to indicate you have seen the film you will get a running total and percentage at the bottom of the sheet.

The Americas:

Note: Brazil’s Silver Daisies are given to several films most years and usually represent documentaries and shorts.  I chose not to include them.

Argentina – Silver Condors

– Genies

Mexico – Ariels

Asia and Oceania:

Asia Pacific Screen Awards

Hong Kong

New Zealand

South Korea

Belgium (both Joseph Plateau and Magritte Awards are included)

The Czech Republic – Lions

– Roberts (the Bodil Awards are not included since those are critics’ awards)

European Film Awards

– Jussis

France – Cesars

– Lolas


– Davids

– Amandas


– Nikas (Yes, I know more of Russia is in Asia than Europe, but they are westward facing culturally)

If you see any mistakes, typos, etc., or have suggestions on how to improve these tracking sheets, please let me know in the comments.
