The Internet Movie Database (IMDB) started as a hobby project by an international group of movie fans and has kept that sensibility. The site has over 400,000 movies catalogued complete with trivia. However, the database is not a complete record of all movies made in all countries, and as the staff is spread over Europe and the United States there is a bias towards movies from those regions. The statistic is best viewed as the number of movies from each country that are shown in those regions.

DEFINITION: Amount of films created in specified country as catalogued by IMDB.

I am amazed how India made the most movies. I thought the USA would have the most movies.
