Film Critics' Circle Australian Film Award Nominations

Hi folks. Just to let you know the films in contention for the FCCA Awards this year and details of the event itself - a fun filled night for which you do not need a special invitation just a modest entry price, about the same as going to the movies. Details of everything below - and if you feel like being generous to a worthy cause see the note further below about sponsoring the evening.


The Film Critics Circle of Australia nominations for Best Film of 2014 are The Babadook (producers Kristina Ceyton and Kristian Moliere), Charlie’s Country (producers Rolf de Heer, Peter Djigirr and Nils Erik Nielsen), Predestination (producers Paddy McDonald, Tim McGahan and Michael Spierig), Tracks (producers Iain Canning and Emile Sherman) and The Water Diviner (producers Troy Lum, Andrew Mason and Keith Rodger).

Leading the nominations with nine is The Water Diviner, followed by The Babadook and Predestination both with eight. Five nominations have been awarded to Charlie’s Country, Felony, The Rover and Tracks. The awards will be selected from12 films released across Australia during the 2014 calendar year.

FCCA President and ABC Radio host Rod Quinn said, “This year’s nominees show the diversity of the Australian film industry – from a scary movie set in a haunted house, to a modern day epic, and stories that cover our entire continent. The filmmakers nominated include the biggest names in Australian film and many talented newcomers.”

The 2014 FCCA Awards Ceremony will be held on Tuesday 10 March, 2015 from 6.30pm at Paddington/Woollahra RSL, Paddington. During the ceremony there will be a tribute to three eminent members of the FCCA who have recently left their long term positions, Evan Williams who has retired from his position as film critic for The Australian, and Margaret Pomeranz and David Stratton who have departed their 28 year television careers as hosts of SBS TV’s The Movie Show and ABC TV’s At The Movies.

The FCCA is grateful to Awards sponsors FOXTEL, UNIVERSAL PICTURES, ACS, AGSC, FILMINK, KARMEE COFFEE, AUSTRALIAN WRITERS IN PRINT and CURRENCY PRESS.
