846 critics, programmers, academics and distributors have voted – and the 50-year reign of Kane is over. This BFI poll has a new number one.
This was a strong year in the world of cinema, particularly for international fare. Rather than highlight the obvious choices that will be recognized by the Academy (The Irishman, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Marriage Story etc), we thought it would be fun to list 10 movies that may not be on your radar.
As we continue into the fall festival season, we thought it would be fun to take a look back at some of the best movies to come out of the film festival arena over the years. Of course, there have been many and narrowing down to 50 is no easy task; but we did emphasize movies that fit the following criteria: 1. The movie was discovered on the Festival circuit, likely winning at least one award along the way. 2. This was either the filmmaker's first film, or one that really helped launch his/her career. 3. The movie was made with low budget, either financed independently, or with a modest sum by traditional Hollywood standards. One film will be added each day, culminating the week of AFI Fest in November!
