The New York Film Critics Circle has admitted three new members and announced the dates for its awards celebrating the best film achievements of 2001.
New critics are Mike Atkinson of the Village Voice, Mike D’Angelo of Time Out New York and Jan Stuart of Newsday.
“The addition of our three new members, all outstanding critics, confirms the health of New York criticism and, for that matter, the health of New York,” said John Anderson, chief film critic of Newsday and chairman of the organization.
Voting on the honors will take place Dec. 13, with results to be announced immediately after the balloting. Winners will receive their awards at the Circle’s annual Awards Banquet, to be held Jan. 6 at the Russian Tea Room.
Marshall Fine of the Westchester Gannett was elected vice-chairman of the group, to succeed Anderson after the January awards ceremony.
