Pan’s Labyrinth defeats Amelie in the Filmotomy World Cup Final 2018

There is no official such party as the Film Integrated Soccer Association (FISA), but it exists as long as we can combine football / soccer with the world of film. And so that is what we did. Combining the format of the current World Cup with our love for movies. International cinema. And here we are at the final two.

We took the football (soccer) tournament format – 32 teams competing in 8 groups of 4, with 16 qualifying for the knock out (round robin) stages. Only with the actual 32 nations competing in the football contest, we’ve selected a modern film equivalent from those nations (through a painstaking selection process). For example, had the likes of Greece and Italy qualified maybe we could have had Dogtooth and The Great Beauty in competition. As it is, we have 32 films from all over the world that will now compete in our FISA World Cup.

The 8 groups of 4 nations were decided by a closed draw compiled by Robin Write, attributing randomly the numbers 1-32 to the nation’s / films. The groups were then draw in sequence by Bianca Garner and Rob Motto, by selecting numbers from the range, on Thursday 14th June. The winners of each match up will be determined by Twitter #filmworldcup votes. Each nation goes head-to-head with the other 3 in the group. The two highest scoring nations qualify for the second round. From then on a straight knock out right until the final.
