It’s that time of year again, the Academy Awards are right around the corner. Airing on March 2nd, this year has a fantastic set of films to choose from for best picture and also the acting categories.

At the end, I will reveal what I believe to be the best picture of the year from the given movies, not what I believe what will actually win the award.
For two weeks, one movie theatre in Chicago is graced with having their entire top floor reserved for one event: a film festival featuring movies made by artists from around the world.

Quite honestly, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. What I did know was that I was going to be doing a lot of subtitles.
