As we reach the end of 2015 we thought it would be interesting to find out which films our committee considered the highlights of the year. Amazingly there were more than 350 different films screened at the Picture House throughout the year and (nearly?) all of them were interesting in some way.
After a quick poll we came up with the following top 5 (which in the grand tradition of film lists contains 6 films).
1. 45 Years
3. The Falling
4= The Tales Of Princess Kaguya
4= Wild Tales
Other films highlighted by the committee include: Alphaville, Amy, Diary Of A Teenage Girl, A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night, Mommy, Our Little Sister, A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence, Selma, Taxi Tehran, Timbuktu, We Are Many.
So how did we do? Is this a good representation of film in 2015? It’s great to see a strong female presence in our selection alongside more mainstream films (Mad Max: Fury Road, The Force Awakens, Sicario, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation).
We’d also like to hear your Top 5 films shown at the Picture House throughout 2015, if we get enough responses we’ll collate a Members List. Let us know in the comments below or over on Twitter using #FOHPPH2015 or Facebook.
Disclaimer: Not all of the committee were available to take part in this poll and it may be updated in the future to include their responses.
