This week, J. McVay looks back on the year in film. He shares his favorite films of 2018; talks about a few films that don’t yet have distribution, but hopefully will sooner rather than later; and previews a handful of films set for release in 2019 that he and the podcast’s contributors on movies were able to see at the Tribeca and New York Film Festivals earlier this year.
And, as the year comes to close, we take a listen to a few of our favorite 1st Person segments from 2018 and revisit some of our favorite BTR Live Studio sessions.
