Just before we set the Champagne corks a-popping to welcome the arrival of 2017, the time is here for Films Of Every Colour to celebrate the movie year that was and run down our picks of the most outstanding films of 2016! Sandy, James, Jeremy and Liz recommend their favourite scary movies, westerns, animation, documentaries and favourite movies overall, along with a truck-load of recommendations sent in by friends of the show. For listeners abroad, it's worth pointing out that we are sticking with the UK cinema release schedule, so don't raise your eyebrows if you hear no mention of Moonlight or La La Land in our top picks – those films will get their due consideration next December.
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone, who took the time to send us their picks for the best films of 2016 – the show was all the more enjoyable and interesting for your contributions! If you would like to provoke a discussion on future episodes of the podcast or demand a platform to argue against us, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org
Back-episodes of the podcast can be found on iTunes, Stitcher Radio, A-cast and Mixcloud. In this end of year special we have reserved space for films not previously reviewed on the show. If you would like to delve into our back catalogue for recommendations of more outstanding films from this year, the very best films we have reviewed on previous episodes are: Denis Villeneuve's Arrival, Pedro Almodóvar's Julieta and Steven Spielberg's The BFG.
