The New York Film Critics Circle (NYFCC), the nation’s oldest and most prestigious association of film critics, turned 75 this year. From the beginning, the Circle has given annual awards to the “best” films in various categories that have opened in New York. To mark the Circle’s milestone anniversary, the Department of Film asked each of the current 27 members to choose one notable film from MoMA’s collection that was a recipient of a NYFCC year-end award. Some screenings are introduced by the contributing film critics.

Organized by Laurence Kardish, Senior Curator, Department of Film, in collaboration with the New York Film Critics Circle.
