#NFOTD2016 – A Year in Review

As 2016 comes to a close and we gear up for 2017, the time has come for my #NFOTD2016 post.  As you all know, I have been participating in #NFOTD (New Film of the Day) for the past four years. For those who don’t know, NFOTD was started by film-lover and director of photography, Cybel Martin. Every day for the last year, #NFOTD2016 participants have watched a film that they have never seen before and tweet (and/or Instagram) about it.
