Festival Watchlist (2016-Present)

In 2016, I started looking at the programmes of various major and minor film festivals around the world and writing down films I thought sounded interesting. I never put them in my actual watchlist, just in several note files on my phone. So here, in vague chronological order, is an amalgamation of those lists. (It doesn't include directors I was already familiar with, and for personal accuracy I'll be updating this as I scour each new programme and also deleting films upon watching.)
