Thomas’s top 10 of 2012

This list proved harder to cut down than I initially thought. Nonetheless, here’s my top films of 2012. Likely subject to change once discussed with exception of the top three.

Enjoy.

The Muppets

Muppetts

Loch Ness Film Festival 2012

“We were sick of our films getting rejected by festivals, so we thought, fuck it we’ll start our own.” William Doig and his son Andrew launched the Loch Ness Film Festival on September 2010, promoting filmmakers from all over the world with the focus on Scottish talent. It’s reputation has grown over the last three years as it strives to cement itself as the film festival for independent film-makers. The focus is on Scottish filmmakers, however everyone is welcome. The Doigs have put up as few barriers as possible to ensure everyone gets a fair crack at getting their film shown and Moviescramble was there to witness the action.
