Best Video Essays of 2016

December 24, 2016

As with last year, we polled esteemed video essay creators, scholars, programmers, and devoted followers of the form to highlight the best video essays of the year. Each year it becomes more necessary to crowdsource this task, for in the words of notable video essayist David Verdeure / Filmscalpel, “It has become impossible to keep up with all video essays that are made, with the form proliferating in both academic and film fan circles.” These poll results might offer some help in sorting out the standouts of the genre. Videos mentioned most frequently in this poll are embedded below, along with the individual lists.
