2016 IndieWire Critics Poll Results: Best Undistributed Film

After over 200 individuals voted in IndieWire's annual Critics Poll, these selected these 50 films from 2016 still looking for distribution.

“Sieranevada”

We asked critics for their favorite films and performances of 2016. For each of the fifteen categories, respondents ranked their picks. Results were tallied using a reverse points system (e.g. ten points for 1st, nine points for 2nd, eight points for 3rd, etc.) – we’ve listed the top 50 below. A full list of participating critics can be found here.

Note: Some of the films listed below did not have distribution during voting but have since been acquired.
