The Cinema Appreciation Society of Toronto (CAST) is an ensemble of critics, bloggers, podcasters and general cinephiles hailing from the cinema haven that is Toronto. United by their shared love of cinema and culture, each year the group swims in the massive pool of theatrical release, and festival screened, films and compiles their selection of the year’s best works. In this year’s CAST Awards, Mad Max: Fury Road reigned supreme…though not without its fair share of debate. Instead of merely releasing their top ten, the group pulled together a few of its members, including site contributor Norman McGlashan (aka. Francis McKay), and recorded a podcast that provides further insight into their top ten selections.
The full list of winners of the 6th annual CAST Awards can be found below:
1. Mad Max: Fury Road
