New York Film Critics Circle Sets Late November Voting Date, Kicking Off Awards Season

The NYFCC is typically the first critics-led organization to announce their winners, getting a major jump on the season and helping set the stage for the weeks to come.

The New York Film Critics Circle has announced the date for its annual vote on the best films and performances of the year, taking place this year on Thursday, November 30, 2017, followed by its annual Gala Awards dinner on Wednesday, January 3, 2018. As is the organization’s tradition, winners will be announced on Twitter during the annual meeting. New members will be announced in October, after their annual meeting on October 20.

Only a handful of other voting bodies go before the NYFCC, including the Gotham Awards (November 27) and the National Board of Review (November 28). The NYFCC is typically the first critics-led organization to announce its winners, getting a major jump on the season and helping set the stage for the weeks to come. IndieWire’s own Deputy Editor and Chief Critic Eric Kohn serves as this year’s Chairman, with Buzzfeed’s Alison Wilmore serving as Vice Chair and Marshall Fine continuing on as General Manager.

In an official statement, Kohn said, “As the oldest institution of its kind in America, the NYFCC represents much more than an awards season hype machine, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t excited about giving out some awards in a year loaded with so many possibilities. We’re looking forward to spirited debates — not only on our voting date but in the weeks leading up to it — as we make our way through the last few major fall season films, while looking back on the year as a whole. We also hope to welcome some new members and continue to expand our presence with events around town.”

Founded in 1935, the New York Film Critics Circle is the oldest and most prestigious in the country. The circle’s membership includes critics from daily and weekly newspapers, magazines, and the web’s most respected online publications.
