elab49 -> Empire Eurovision - Discussion Thread (23/5/2012 4:48:52 PM)
Discussing this in the top 100 thread, I wondered how many people might be interested in a Eurovision type film contest. The basics would be
- you get your country (I think some people would be happy with any, but others could ask for 1 or more and if more than one person wants a particular country we can draw for it. I'd try to make sure that everyone gets a country they are happy to choose films for though, otherwise it really won't work)
- the country holder nominates, say, 1-3 films from their country for submission to the contest. One film might produce a really obvious winner, but if you've got to balance your score over a couple it might be harder for your country to win.
- rounds depend on how many people take part really.
- there is a question of watching/access to the films - this one may sink the ship before it starts tbh, but note it as up for discussion for the moment.
- scoring - would be the same as Eurovision. This may also help cause some surprises in the final vote.
Country options include
Ukraine - stuff from the old Soviet filmmaking has been shared out here like Arsenal, etc, it seems
Ruiz or D Oliviera fans could go Portugal
