Online Film Critics Society 2017 Award Winners!

The race this year was tight, and for a good reason. There were so many films made by minorities (females, people of color, LGBTQ+ people, people with disabilities, etc) about minorities. They presented important stories, perspectives, and much needed social commentary. Add to that the powerful perfomances from not only veteran actors, but newcomers who have just had their breakout moments. Below are all the winners as we conclude another successful awards season. Thank you all for participating with us. The Governing Committee would especially like to thank our international membership for lending us their perspectives so that we could come up with such diverse choices.

We've made some changes!

You probably noticed a few design changes at ofcs.org. We hope you like (or at least don’t despise) the new look.

The big change, however, will arrive later this week. In addition to all the links of reviews of classic movies and non-mainstream fare, we’re finally adding links to reviews of new titles, too. This will hopefully allow you to stay up-to-date with our members’ views on all the latest theatrical releases.

Looking for a certain title? Wondering if your favorite OFCS member has covered a certain movie you’re thinking of watching? Don’t forget to check out the “search” bar in the upper right. It’ll find every post where your movie of choice has been mentioned since we started this blog last year.

Questions? Comments? Let us know in the comments section, or by emailing us at gc[at]ofcs.org.

Welcome the new OFCS Governing Committee!

The Online Film Critics Society has elected its new Governing Committee.

Eric D. Snider was re-elected to a second consecutive term on the committee. The Portland, Ore.-based critic writes for Film.com, Cinematical, and EricDSnider.com.

Also elected was Phil Hall, who previously served on the committee from 2002-2009. Hall is the New York-based reviewer for Film Threat and is the author of four books, most recently “The History of Independent Cinema” (BearManor Media, 2009).

David Cornelius, the Cincinnati-based reviewer for eFilmCritic.com, joins the Governing Committee for the first time.

The three-member Governing Committee will serve through March 2011.

the OFCS welcomes new member Roderick Heath

The OFCS is delighted to announce that Roderick Heath has been granted membership in the organization. Heath’s reviews appear at Ferdy on Films, etc..

Heath says:

My desire in film criticism has always been to celebrate the cinema in its diversity, to explore the pleasures and mystique of good movies, and to tackle the cultural resonance of film as both an art form and a vehicle of entertainment. I love to look for signs of creativity and commitment in even the most demeaned genres, and dig as deeply as I can into the meaning of cinema’s most important works and the methods of their creators.

The OFCS welcomes Heath as a member.

the OFCS welcomes new member Ali Gray

The OFCS is delighted to announce that Ali Gray has been granted membership in the organization. Gray’s reviews appear at TheShiznit.co.uk.

Gray says:

I’ve been writing about cinema for several years now, and TheShiznit.co.uk has existed in some form or another since 2004, but it’s only recently that it’s taken off and I’ve found likeminded writers – like those in the OFCS – to share it with. The site’s M/O is pretty loose, with regular news, reviews, editorial pieces and list-type features – but everything is written from a personal point of view. I kid myself we like to write about serious film, but really, we tend to be distracted by big, shiny movies – and I suspect that’s the way our readers like it too.

The OFCS welcomes Gray as a member.
