We know it’s January 2017, but some of us tried to squeeze in as many 2016 releases as possible to solidify our picks.

We asked our contributors to provide their Top 10 Films of 2016. We also asked them to provide some picks for the most underrated/overrated films of the year, best performances, best television series etc.

One condition: Every film must have had an Australian cinematic or streaming release during the 2016 calendar year.

Who has the best list? What were your favourite films of 2016?
