PHOENIX FILM CRITICS SOCIETY – Awards Jury

Founded in October 2000 by David Ramsey and Roger Tennis the Phoenix Film Critics Society (PFCS) started with 10 original members. The PFCS quickly gained attention from the major film studios and independent film distributors. One of the reasons for the recognition was that all members are established film critics in Arizona. “We wanted to put Phoenix on the short list of cities that are important to the studios and independents,” says Tennis. “One of our goals as a Society is to promote film in Arizona by helping to involve the community in support of the motion picture as an art form.” The PFCS is proud to partner with the Scottsdale International Film Festival as the judges of the awards competition. The 2019 PFCS Jury is comprised of:
