Happy birthday to us!

Bent

It's been 69 days since we launched this wee blog and we figured why not commemorate it by listing a bunch of our favorite posts in one big fabulous batch. 

Speaking of fabulous: Thank you to Peter Knegt, Matthew Hammett Knott, Alice Lytton, Sophie Smith and Oliver Skinner for their daily contributions, and to Toby Ashraf, Fabio Bondi, Les Fabien Brathwaite, Laurence H. Collin, Ronan Doyle, Bethany Jones, Gary M. Kramer, John Oursler, Gregory Rosebrugh, Nigel M. Smith and Matt Thomas for the various thoughtful words they've brought to our table too.

And here's to the next 69 days... If you ideas that you'd like to pitch /bent -- whether ones similar to what's listed below or something totally different -- e-mail Peter Knegt at peter@indiewire.com. This is meant to be a forum for as many voices as possible, so don't be shy in adding to our conversation. But until then, check out some of the conversations we've tried to start already:
