Co-founded by longtime Atlanta film critics Michael Clark and Felicia Feaster, the Atlanta Film Critics Circle is an attempt to fill a void in the local film community and in the representation of Atlanta’s media on the national stage.
“With so much film production happening in Atlanta, the city has gained incredible prominence within the film industry,” Feaster said. “We’d like to see our critical community, many of whom have been longtime voices in the media, receive their due recognition as well, and promote film art at every level.
“We’d like to do our part to raise the profile of film criticism in particular in the city and nationally.”
Composed of a mix of Atlanta-based critics working in newspaper, magazine and online journalism, the newly launched Atlanta Film Critics Circle helps to solidify Atlanta’s status as a Top 10 film market with a robust media presence and a booming film production industry. Georgia is currently No. 1 in feature film production over any other market according to FilmL.A. Inc.
