Org to recognize best features, docs, foreign-lingo pix

NEW YORK — The New York Film Critics Circle will vote for its annual awards Dec. 16 at the Muse Hotel in Gotham.

The NYFCC awards recognize the year’s best features, docs and foreign-lingo pics.

The kudos will be handed out at the NYFCC’s awards dinner, to be held Jan. 12 at Noche.

This year’s NYFCC kudos will be posted on the org’s Web site, http://www.nyfcc.com, shortly after they are announced.

“It’s impossible to predict the group’s selection in any given year,” said Marshall Fine, who chaired the group in 1992. “I don’t think we’ve seen the films yet that will win this year’s awards.”

Fine is the film critic for the Journal News in Westchester and a national film correspondent for the Gannett News Service.

Since 1935, the NYFCC often has voted in a more cineaste, less mainstream direction than the members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences (Oscars), the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. (Golden Globes) and other groups. Last year org voted David Lynch’s quirky “Mulholland Drive” its best film.
