Film making around the world

I was wondering where are films made around the world.  Luckily we have IMDB as a datasource about films and cartograms as a visualisation technique.  A cartogram is a map where areas have been adjusted to a quantity of interest.  In this case we’ll adjust the area of each country so that the resultant area is proportional to the number of films in IMDB from that country.


So watching a lot of films from the US is probably to be expected but are you up enough on European and Japanese cinema?

[For info I used the Rcartogram package to make this plot.]
