tthe-imposter-movie-image-01I can’t believe three-quarters of 2012 is now behind us! This quarter has seen me visit Melbourne and attend the Melbourne International Film Festival for the first time; I also covered the Korean Film Festival in Australia, Possible Worlds Canadian Film Festival, and The Sydney Underground Film Festival. Wow – it was super busy in parts! September has been a relatively quiet month, and I have taken a break from watching films daily – instead I focused on seeing new releases and watched the odd DVD.

I watched 82 feature films during this quarter (down from my 1 per day due to less activity in September). This takes my total to 273 feature films viewed thus far in 2012, which has me exactly on target for my goal of a film a day.

Check out my 10 favourite picks after the jump!
