NFOTD 2012

In short #NFOTD means New Film of the Day and a twitter hashtag meaning a film you have never seen before.

This year the creator of the term Cinematographer Cybel Martin decided to ask us NFOTDers (filmmakers and film lovers who use the #NFOTD hashtag on Twitter) about their favorite NFOTD for 2012.

In her words
1. fav film in theater 
2. fav streaming/DVD 
3. fav most eccentric 
4. fav doc

Below is what I said in reverse as a kind of countdown. (There are links to more about these films at the end.)
