Twitch's Best Of 2013 - Best Festival

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.

One could argue that the backbone of what many of us do at Twitch is made up of the myriad festivals we attend each year. While many may talk up Cannes, Toronto or Sundance, it's quite clear from our picks that great festival going experiences come in all shapes and sizes.

Todd Brown, Peter Martin, James Marsh, J Hurtado, Kurt Halfyard, Andrew Mack, Shelagh M. Rowan-Legg, Jaime Grijalba Gomez, Kwenton Bellette, Brian Clark, Patryk Czekaj, Ard Vijn, Eric Ortiz Garcia, Pierce Conran, Christopher O'Keeffe, Ben Umstead, Ryland Aldrich and Jason Gorber contributed to this story.
