Over the last year we have brought you countless interviews with filmmakers and actors in the Arts & Culture section of Dazed Digital and our first documentary for Dazed TV. We were proud to feature stories on luminaries such as David Lynch, Oliver Stone, Mike Leigh and Bertrand Tavernier as well as new groundbreaking celluloid masters such as Romain Gavras, Kim Chapiron and Julien Nitzburg. Choosing ten stories we thought you might like to revisit in the New Year was tough work, as there were many more interviews we wanted to include, such as our interviews with Oscar-winning director Fernando Trueba, the avante-garde director Alexei Pobogrebsky, groundbreaking fashion filmmaker Mundi Vondi and everyone's favourite young scally Thomas Turgoose.

Sadly, you can't have them all in there, so we took a vote and went for a mix-up of the stories exclusive to Dazed Digital that we got the biggest kick out of, and the ones that you guys seemed most excited about. We would like to thank all of our contributors for their hard work, and look forward to bringing you more killer editorial in 2011.
