What makes a film stand out from others? Without a doubt it’s the outstanding directing, absorbing screenplay, fantastic acting, cinematography and music. But the best thing in movies is also that je ne sais quoi, what we feel when we find ourselves in unique places. This can be described as the aura, climate or atmosphere, but this is what we call the magic of the cinema.

One of the films that best describes this (and is also an Oscar winner) is Cinema Paradiso. The entrance into the cinema changes into the gate to another world, for a brief moment we can transport ourselves to a different place, time, and finally feel like someone else and allow ourselves to be captivated by the story.

At Pixers we decided to try to capture this magic on 10 mood boards referring to this year's nominations in the Best Picture category. See how we have portrayed the following:Arrival, Fences, Hacksaw Ridge, Hell or High Water, Hidden Figures, La La Land, Lion, Manchester by the Sea and Moonlight.
