Atlanta Film Critics Circle Announces its 2021 Winners

For the fifth year, the twenty-eight voting members of Atlanta’s only dedicated city-specific critics group, the Atlanta Film Critics Circle, have awarded their top films of the year.

Composed of a dynamic mix of 28 Atlanta-based critics working in newspaper, magazine and online journalism, the AFCC’s mission is to establish a national presence for a film critics group in Atlanta and to foster a vibrant film culture in Atlanta, already home to an exploding film industry production presence.

Founding members (critics living in and/or currently writing for global, national, regional and/or Atlanta metro area outlets) of AFCC voted on December 5 for the group’s annual awards

“This year marked the first time we’ve tied in two categories, with ties in the Best Ensemble and Actress categories,” AFCC Advisory Board member Jason Evans notes. “It speaks to the quality of the films during this crazy pandemic year.”
