Episode Three: Criminally Overlooked Films

Annual JBFC series Programmers Picks offers us the chance to share a selection of films that, for whatever reason, didn’t get the attention or audiences they deserved this past year. Using the series as a jumping-off point, co-hosts Mike Towndrow and Paige Grand Pré sit down with JBFC Senior Programmer Andrew Jupin for a conversation about their favorite overlooked films from the past year and beyond.
