Most Anticipated Films of 2023

Annual Top Films Lists’s Top 200 Most Anticipated Foreign Films for 2023!: A Countdown’s Top 200 Most Anticipated Foreign Films for 2023!: A Countdown

We love to begin the year with a bang and as per usual, we present to you:’s Top 200 Most Anticipated Foreign Films for … 2023! We’ve been charting these films for years now. From funding labs to national cinema coin to work-in-progress screenings to snip-its of info dropped in interviews when promoting their last oeuvres and let us not forget the tidbits of info on the socials. We’d even go to the lengths of Apple AirTagging Hong Sang-soo to make sure all our bases are covered.

Tell your friends, let us know what you think and make sure to check back daily as we move up/down the list in increments of twenty. There are some neat surprises towards the end: a dozen first time filmmakers crack our Top 100 (see our template collage above), our Nicholas Bell will unveil our top 10 and introduce our special “Through the Looking Glass” feature where we look at some 2024 goodies as well. Thank you to the folks at Mubi for their continued support. See you tomorrow folks!

* Reminder: This does not include studio films, American indie or docu film items and does include English language-speaking films from outside of the United States.
