The SWITCH team have put together their top films from this year's festival line-up, so check out our reviews below - and make sure you come back throughout the festival for new additions!
Levan Akin has made a remarkable film, a passionate dance for love, for country, for tradition, for art and for survival. This will easily go down as an LBGTIQ+ classic.
A high drama that paints a grim picture of a religiously driven Guatemala, 'Tremors' is sure to leave you shaken.
As the film trots along, more evidence is wheeled out, causing your opinion to flop minute to minute. There’s drag queens, a satirical musical, more boobs than you could possibly imagine!
An intimate look at the very complex identity of Chelsea Manning who did what she thought was the right thing in releasing classified documents to WikiLeaks, despite the dire consequences.
You can see the good film buried underneath, and Henry Golding gives a very emotional performance, but it's unfortunately lost as 'Monsoon' is simply uninteresting.
