28/1/2011: The Top 100 Chinese-Language Films Announced at the Golden Horse Festival

In January 2011 the Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival announced the results of a poll to find the Ď100 Greatest Chinese-Language Films.   122 industry professionals, including directors, actors, producers and film scholars took part in the survey.  Many of those taking part originated from Taiwan, which it was felt may have consequently given the survey a skewed result.   Each voter selected up to 30 films from a spreadsheet containing 601 titles, although they were permitted to nominate films that didnít appear on the list.   The official selection of films was heavily biased towards more recent releases with pre-1980 titles making up just 30% of the total films.   The oldest film to make the top 100 was Sun Yuís Little Toys from 1933, which sneaked in at number 91.
