Hello, Film Clubbers! We’ve had a LOT of nominees for February’s films, so instead of posting it on Instagram, I thought I’d do the poll here. I’ve included all the nominees down below with links to their IMDB pages. At the bottom of this post you will find a poll for February’s films. Each person can vote for two films. Please, if budget is a factor for you, check streaming services available to you before voting. I can’t guarantee that your country will have these films available for free (or for paid, for that matter). Voting ends January 31st. Also, if you see a mistake in this list, please let me know.
