OverviewEdit

The San Diego Film Critics Society (SDFCS) is composed of print, television, radio and digital film critics working in San Diego County. According to the SDFCS, the mission of the society is to provide diverse critical opinion about movies, advance film education and awareness, and recognize excellence in cinema. The society holds several events each year to benefit local student filmmakers and provides provision of financial assistance for the academic pursuits of young filmmakers. The society also supports Film School Confidential, an annual festival held at the Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park, presenting short films directed and produced by local student filmmakers.[4] The events organized by the society often include screenings of excellent studio and independent films at various locations, many times featuring appearances by directors and actors involved in the film.[3][5]

SDFCS Award CeremonyEdit

Each year, the society votes on the SDFCS Awards, which recognizes the best cinematic efforts of the year. This includes recognition of best film, actor, actress, director, cinematographer and numerous other categories. The voting results are published in film-related media worldwide, culminating in an annual awards banquet.[6][7][8] Award nominations and winners are typically announced in the second week of December. In addition to the SDFCS Award, the organization presents an annual Career Award, Kyle Counts Award, and Special Award for an outstanding performer from that year. The Kyle Counts Award, named after the late San Diego film critic, recognizes a person or institution who is advancing film awareness, education and entertainment in the county.[9][3]
