THE ONLINE FILM CRITICS SOCIETY ANNOUNCES WINNERS FOR THE 2014 OFCS AWARDS

New York, NY – December 15, 2014 – The Online Film Critics Society are proud to announce the winners for the 18th annual OFCS awards for excellence in film.

Founded in 1997, the Online Film Critics Society is the largest and oldest organization of its kind, and a key catalyst in the expansion of Internet-based film journalism. The OFCS represents over 275 members worldwide.

“This year represented an opportunity to revisit our youth, look toward the future, and search deep inside our souls through the spectacular array of films shown on screen. We found courage, love and heartbreak in this year’s films and we’re proud to be able to honor them,” says OFCS Chair Cole Smithey. [Editor’s Note: This attribution is factually incorrect.
