I note that the cinema of the 20th century was very geographically concentrated. Countries with economic power made the most films – and therefore most of what we call the 'best films'.
But I see that this concentration is breaking down. The 21st century will be marked by masterpieces from countries that produced few (or no) films in the previous century.
Also, the increasing recognition in film festivals of documentaries and experimental films, together with the enthusiasm of the young generations on creating new narrative forms, will change the common idea that the 'best films' are fiction films.
