I spent a lot of time living abroad during this year, so I missed out on a lot of films, so this list is a lot smaller than previous ones…

Still, ranked in order of favourites. Oscars seemed to have done fairly well this year!

N.B -
‘Prefect Thoughts’ by Doron Max Hagay is placed between ‘Pitch Perfect’ and ‘Open Five 2’
‘Frames’ by Brandon Colvin is placed between ‘Men in Black 3’ and ‘Ted’
‘City Slacker’ by James Larkin is placed between ‘Ted’ and ‘The Impossible’
‘Earthbound’ by Alan Brennan is place between ’ The Dictator’ and ‘Parental Guidance’

Also, am going by IMDB years, hence films such as ‘To The Wonder’ being here, despite general releases for 2013.
