I’m a little late to posting this but here is the list of my favorite films of the year. I’m posting in alphabetical order but bolding the films that I think really are the must sees. I’m also ending the post with the list of films I haven’t seen but need to and bolding the ones I’m most excited about. As I watch them I’ll either bump these films up to the Favorites list or cut them. Let me know your thoughts and your favorite films! Anything I missed?

    Tell me you got around to seeing Mud! Caught it on Netfilx streaming the other day and was really surprised and impressed. Love when one sneaks into my top 5 of the year unexpectedly. Surprised to see Only God Forgives in your faves… I’m a huge fan of Drive… but, I’m still waiting for someone to convince me on OGF.

James Belfer - Founder & CEO

James founded Dogfish in 2009 to produce and invest in independent film (in which he made 6 films). He was named by Deadline Hollywood as one of 2012′s 10 Producers to Keep Watching. In 2013 he launched the Dogfish Accelerator program after an inspiring experience working for TechStars in Boulder, Colorado. He’s a Northwestern University graduate and received his MBA from NYU Stern in 2013. He currently is an Adjunct Professor at NYU Tisch School of the Arts where he teaches Strategies For Independent Producing. James aspires to be one of the world’s most renowned hermits. He tends to spend most of his free time in South Williamsburg watching cartoons and googling “best Texas BBQ in NYC.” He also runs a monthly meetup called A Presentation of the Deplorable, Bizarre, and Terrible in which he binge watches 10 films in a row that most of the world has never seen (most of the time for glaringly obvious reasons). As of July 2014 only 3 people have attended.
