The National Society of Film Critics Awards 2013

The National Society of Film Critics (NSFC), which consists of critics nationwide who write for weekly and daily newspapers. Founded in 1966 in New York, NSFC’s annual awards are among the most prestigious film critics awards in the United States. In past years, many of the NSFC Best Picture award winners have been foreign films and their choices rarely parallel the Academy Awards. According to the NSFC website, “its purpose is to promote the mutual interests of film criticism and filmmaking.”
