Any title, specifically a "feature", with a running time of less than 45 minutes ie. 44 minutes or less. As such, shorts is not a genre category but a collection of films with a maximum specific length. Therefore, a short can be of any genre, although animation is one of the most prevalent.

Cahiers du cinéma is an influential French film magazine founded in 1951. The magazine has picked its top ten films of the year, most years. Top ten films were not picked in the years 1952-1954, 1969-1980, and in the year 2003. Rankings can be viewed in my source list URL, or via the link provided in the comments section. In some cases, films tie for a certain spot in the yearly top 10; for example, 2012's #4 spot is tied between three films (consequently, there is no #5 or #6). Some directors definitely appear to be heavily preferred by those responsible for selecting the list. This list does not include the special "best of 1990s" and "best of 2000s" decade lists, though most of those twenty films are included here. (The exceptions are David Lynch's TV show Twin Peaks on the 1990s list, and Gus Van Sant's Elephant, Abdellatif Kechiche's The Secret of the Grain, and Steven Spielberg's War of the Worlds on the 2000s decade list.) Other anomalies: The TV show "24" tied for the #10 spot in 2002, along with Gus Van Sant's Gerry. Gerry also tied for #6 on the 2004 list. A TV episode "Travolta et moi" (dir. Patricia Mazuy) from the show "Tous les garçons et les filles de leur âge..." was selected as #6 in 1994. Claire Denis' episode "US Go Home" from the same series rated #9 in 1994. Raul Ruiz's Les trois couronnes du matelot (Three Crowns of the Sailor) tied for #7 in 1983 and tied for #8 in 1982. 1968's #4 spot for Histoires extraordinaires is specifically for Federico Fellini's segment "Toby Damnit." 1965's #4 spot for Paris vu par... is specifically for the Jean Rouch episode. 1959's #3 spot was claimed by Eisenstein's Ivan the Terrible. Since Part II was released in 1958, it is possible that the award was for Part II, but since my sources didn't specify a part and both parts may have been shown together, I have included Parts I & II in the list. Love it or hate it, here it is...

The IMDb top 250 is probably the most well-known movie list in the world. It has earned this reputation through the fact that it has been composed by aggregating the votes of many normal moviegoers. In other words, this is a list by and for the people and not some elite movie-critics list.

This list presents the all time box office top grossing movies, but adjusted for ticket price inflation. Inflation-adjustment is mostly done by multiplying estimated admissions by the latest average ticket price. Where admissions are unavailable, adjustment is based on the average ticket price for when each movie was released (taking in to account re-releases where applicable).

The 21st Century's Most Acclaimed Films list serves as a companion to the They Shoot Pictures, Don't They? 1,000 Greatest Films of all time list which, - by its nature - tends to have very few films from the 21st century in it. The 21st Century's Most Acclaimed Films list attempts to highlight and honour this century's most critically revered films and act as a sort of 'resting bay' for many great films that are likely to be included in the 1,000 Greatest Films list sooner or later.

The Cannes Film Festival, founded in 1946, is one of the world's oldest film festivals. The private festival is held annually (usually in May) in the resort town of Cannes, in the south of France. Cannes is extremely important for critical and commercial interests and for European attempts to sell films on the basis of their artistic quality. Additionally, given massive media exposure, the non-public festival is attended by many movie stars and is a popular venue for film producers to launch their new films and attempt to sell their works to the distributors who come from all over the globe.
