So, the following list contains my favourite films of the year. I normally run with 25 favourites but I saw 168 new films this year (62 alone were from film festivals) which is more than my usual so I’ve upped it to 30 (And even then it broke my heart cutting some out of a list that began with 50).

These films embodied an honesty and optimism that were needed in a year like this one. These films reflected social progression and change. These 30 films for me encompassed all of those feelings yet not a single one, no matter when or where it was set, ever ignores the current state of things and how bad they are. They each acknowledge it and then give you something in return.

These films are inclusive, exciting, progressive, challenging, hopeful and they greatly improved my year.


Honourable Mentions: Girls Trip, Lady Macbeth, Battle Of The Sexes, The Big Sick, The Florida Project, Blade Of The Immortal, Rat Film, Sami Blood
