Does a film like Hosoda's Belle count as 2021 or 2022?

You can use whatever definition of years you want here. It looks like it would be 2021 if you went by first screening, wide domestic release, or IMDb year, but 2022 if you went by first non-festival screening in the U.S. Just pick whatever definition makes the most sense to you and try to use it consistently in these threads
