I've updated the second post
in this thread, striking out a bunch of titles that look like they might
be available. My thinking is that a handful of films we let into the ballot will turn out to be unavailable in an acceptable format (no subtitles, cropped images, etc.), so we'll have a pool of alternates ready to take their places. So there's no harm in being optimistic.
worm, can you double check that your library has the 1990s version of Peony Pavilion
? It looks like it's not the only film by that name; most sources I've looked at have had a 2001 version.
edgar, can you PM me a source for Don't Cry, Nanking
