Ben Umstead, East Coast Editor
The year that was 2013 has almost run its course, so the time has come for Team Twitch to pool its ever-growing troupe of contributors from the four corners of the planet, gather its collective thoughts and pay special tribute to those films that have made a particularly strong impact over the past twelve months.

The realm of animated film can offer delights and terrors unlike any other medium imaginable. 2013 brought some of the most astounding works to come along in the field in sometime, with the final feature of a world renowned master hauling in the most votes by a pinch.
