2016 - A Year in Film

Even though we have another month left, cinephiles are already releasing 2016 recap videos. Chris Santana has launched the very first 2016 - A Year in Film recap, which includes footage from almost every (major) movie released in 2016. The only one missing is Martin Scorsese's Silence, only because they still haven't released a trailer for it yet. I'm very happy to see smaller films like Jackie, Moonlight, Lion and Manchester by the Sea featured in this, especially because they're an important part of 2016 in film. And it's especially important to include La La Land, most likely because it has the best chance at winning Best Picture. Dive in.

Thanks to Awards Daily for the tip. Found on YouTube direct from Chris Santana. This is the first of recap videos this year, and we expect more of them to show up over the next month. This is the first recap video that Chris Santana has made. I love featuring these "looking back" videos at the end of the year, because they're a great reminder that movies bring us so much joy, so much solace, so much happiness. Even if you think this isn't the best year for movies, there's still plenty of great films to appreciate - and it's nice to take a moment to look back and remember all that cinema brought us this year. Cheers to a good year of movies.

A bunch of these aren't even out yet...they couldn't have waited another month?

Everything on the internet these days is a race to be "first". Which includes the first to put out a recap video. There will be plenty more of these in December, don't worry.

This one felt like it was rushed to be first. It sure included some good shots but the overall editing and music didn't make me feel excited about the year as a whole like some of these do.

David Diaz on Nov 21, 2016


I don't disagree... 😉 But that's why I'm saying there will be plenty more of these in due time...

Alex Billington on Nov 21, 2016


Yeah. There are usually one or two that stand out from the rest for me.
