An Oscars sweep by one film usually means that many other films are left unrecognised – but that doesn't mean they're any less worthy. So be sure to give the many other nominated films some love when we screen them, including two bigs ones with TÁR and THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN coming up this week!
