Cathy Dee | On 21, Feb 2014
Awards season is well underway! (yes that goes for here in Australia, not just overseas).
The nominations for the 2014 Australian Film Critics Association (AFCA) Awards have been announced.
In case you donâ€™t know AFCA is a professional association for film critics, reviewers and journalists who work regularly in the media and provide informed commentary on Australian and world cinema.
AFCAâ€™s aim is to promote excellence and expertise in film criticism, and foster an appreciation of significant films that may be neglected by other such organisations.
Thus the event awards prizes to the best Australian film criticism across four categories:
1. Ivan Hutchinson Award for writing on Australian cinema
2. Award for writing on non-Australian cinema
3. Award for a review of an individual Australian film
4. Award for a review of an individual non-Australian film
There are also awards for best film, best director, best actor, best actress, best screenplay and many more.
The writing award and film award winners will be announced on the 1 March, at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI).
This year the event is hosted by actor/comedian, Ben McKenzie.
