List: Top 5 Fall Films 2016

This week on Episode 185 of the InSession Film Podcast, we looked ahead to the fall and discussed our most anticipated films as we finish out the year of 2016. For a lot of people, the summer may have been a bummer for mainstream films, but the fall looks promising on that front. It looks even better for indie films, which have been stellar this year, and that trend looks to continue this fall. If it all lives up, the rest of 2016 could be special.

On that note, which 2016 fall films would make your list? Here are the one’s that made ours:

*Keep in mind we have different criteria for our lists as well*


1) Silence
2) The Birth of a Nation
3) Certain Women
