North Texas Film Critics Association Nominations Announced

BY IRVING WEEKLY STAFF

Irving, Texas. January 19, 2021

The North Texas Film Critics Association (NTFCA) is pleased to announce this year’s nominations in each of our voting categories.

“In a year that saw many changes, I believe we had a variety of choices in the world of film,” said NTFCA President Rita Cook. “Movies will always be a way to connect with other cultures, other ideas and we must make sure this continues. In a time when we are not able to travel and see the world as we have done in the past, the importance of creating a connection with other cultures, trends and world changes through film has never been more necessary. I believe the NTFCA membership has given a nod to a variety of worthy nominations. We hope you will join us in recognizing this and our final winners, which will be announced later this month.”

The North Texas Film Critics Association spends countless hours throughout the year viewing films to determine each year’s “best” in 11 categories. More recently added as a 12th category is the GARY MURRAY AWARD for Best Ensemble, in honor of the organizations well-loved past president.

Winners in each category will be announced Monday, January 25, 2021.
