The Best Video Essays of the Year

Publish date:

Film School Rejects's H. Perry Horton counts down his 10 favorite video essays of the year, from supercuts celebrating the works of auteurs like Stanley Kubrick, Steven Spielberg and Quentin Tarantino, to personal looks at the history of LGBTQ cinema and more.

He writes, "While I think it’s safe to say we’re no longer in the infancy phase of the video essay, it’s still very much a nascent form, which is exciting because that means it’s yet to be defined, and still ripe for exploration. These are some of the folks and some of the work I think is leading the way."
