REEL ROUNDUP with CARLA RENATA

What Were My Flick Favs for 2015? Check it out…

What a year in film it has been and I have been right there on the from lines from the Oscars, Pan African Film Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, AFI Docs Festival, AFI Film Festival, Asian -American Film Festival, Indian Film Festival, numerous red carpets and press roundtables.  Whew!!!  I’m tired just listing them all!

There were numerous films based on true events or real-life figures, ironically many of them based on show business people. It is always very interesting to me that films that release dates closer to voting time are always the ones getting the most attention

Having said that here are my top ten  films, documentaries and honorable mentions for 2015 in no particular order.  Attached are the links to my reviews on these films, so you can fully see what I had to say. Don’t forget to check out my video and share…mama is trying to get to the Cannes and Toronto Film Festival and I am putting it out here to gain over 2 million subscribers/viewers for 2016.
