Drafthouse Films Shares Top Ten Films of 2013

Meet the crew with our best of the year lists!

Drafthouse Films Shares Top Ten Films of 2013

Its that time again! Here we have the Drafthouse Films team with their individual top ten lists of the year. Just like last year, the main parameter here is that each film must have been given a proper theatrical release in 2013, which excludes any of the 2013 festival favorites we've screened this year. We'll save those for next year.

And to anyone who may question the sincerity of the inclusion of The Act Of Killing on our year-end lists, we aren't including here because we distributed the film, we distributed the film because we thought it was one of the best films of the year. And now onto the lists!
