QUAD Staff's Top Film of 2021

We carried our a poll of QUAD staff to find out their favourite film of 2021 and can now reveal that the winner was…

Petite Maman, (France, directed by Céline Sciamma)

Alex Rock, QUAD’s Head of Technical and Commercial Services, described his reason to choose this film as his number 1 for 2021 –

“Céline Sciamma has carved out a niche in the past decade or so for fine-art cinema, combining deeply personal storytelling with an artist’s eye for composition. Petite Maman, clocking in at 72 minutes, has no fat, and two incredible central performances. I thought Portrait of a Lady on Fire was pure cinema, but Petite Maman runs it close.”

Honourable mentions go to The Father, The Green Knight, No Time To Die, Sound Of Metal, After Love and Apples which all received a number of votes but not quite enough to pip Petite Maman to the title.
