ICM Forum's World Cup

The ICM World Cup is a tournament where we start with 48 countries, and they get eliminated until one country wins. There are 5 rounds and each round the winning films get replaced with other films from the same country. In the first round the countries are divided in 16 groups of 3 countries. Every participants watches the movies and posts the order of their preference. The results will be calculated head-to-head. In case of a tie, the average ranking decides. In other rounds each match has two countries. The country with the most votes wins and continues to the next round.
