Awards Circuit Staff Top 10 Films of 2017 Revealed!

Big Collage

As Awards Circuit embraces the diversity of its readership, allowing all of you to vote in our annual Awards Circuit Community Awards, the staff is an eclectic group from different parts of the world. Finally ready to close the book on 2017, the staff’s Top 10 Films of the year are presented down below.

Each writer has their own tastes, their own sensibilities, with each film speaking to them differently. I’m excited to have the team I have and am thankful for their contribution to this corner of the internet.
