yeah... think about all the crap that the USA produces... then think of Nigeria and India and multiply that by 4. Actually... more like by 8.. since America actually does make some good stuff. I was aware of Nigerian films because I saw many theaters playing them when I was in Ethiopia.

got all with over 5 minutes left on my first try. Are you sure Egypt doesn't belong on this list? Egyptian movies are very popular over here in the Middle East. Seems like they produce at least 46 per year. I'm also surprised that Sweden, Australia, Israel and some others failed to make the list.

I had no idea that there was a movie industry in Nigeria at all, but then U.S. schools don't generally tell us much about Africa at all, other than that's where all the slaves came from.

Nigerian films are generally ultra-low budget (or no budget) schlock. A bunch fall into the "so bad it's good" territory.

I had no idea Switzerland had a movie industry huh. I sorta assumed they would mostly consume French, German, Italian and American movies and I don't recall a recent Swiss movie.

Same here. That was the only one I didn't get. Maybe I've seen Swiss films and just assumed they were from Italy or Germany because of the language.

United States 791 in 2015 with maybe 10 worth the time and/or money to actually watch. I would hope that the countries that make fewer are making better quality. Based on what US puts out, I wouldn't hold my breath for the other countries just churning them out.

I'm guessing you've probably only seen 10 of those 791 and decided the rest weren't worth watching based on personal prejudice. Yes the United States produces a lot of shitty movies. Mostly because most of them make big box office around the world. International audiences account for something like 80% of the take for Fast & the Furious and Transformers movies, for example. But the USA also produces more good films than anywhere else and by a substantial margin. Those films don't get shown overseas as often because there's not as much of a market for them.

I cannot honestly remember seeing a Swiss movie. That was the last country I got when I'd tried all the ones I suspected (Sweden? I've seen many Swedish movies) and was just randomly guessing European countries. Or is it a tax thing? On what basis does UNESCO class movies as made in a particular country - it's often ambiguous with various production companies and studios contributing from multiple countries, particularly in Europe.

When you're watching a Swiss movie, you probably think you're watching a German movie. Same happens to the poor Austrian.
