feature: Winners of the Dublin Film Critics Circle Awards 2015 announced

With the year end creeping up on us, the Dublin Film Critics Circle have announced their top films and performances for 2015.

I have to be honest, it’s a scramble in the holiday season to pull together my votes for the annual awards. Despite the scramble though, it’s something that I very much enjoy doing. It’s great to take a little time during the holidays to reflect and review what I really thought about the many films I’ve been lucky enough to see in the last 12 months.

I’ll be posting up my top films of the year soon but before that here are the films and performances that myself and the other members of the Dublin Film Critics Circle deemed the tops of the year.
