Kansas City Film Critics Circle Announces 2017 Awards

Since 1966, when it was formed by Dr. James Loutzenhiser, the Kansas City Film Critics Circle has been at the forefront of the cinematic community in Kansas City. In fact, it is the second oldest professional film critics’ association in the United States, after the New York Film Critics Circle.

With the end of the year, it’s time to reflect on the best of the best of 2017. As a new member of the KCFCC, this was my first year participating in the annual voting and I can say it was quite fun discovering films I might not have otherwise watched.

So, grab a drink and some popcorn while you get out your personal checklist and see what the KCFCC voted as the best in the 52nd Annual James Loutzenhiser Awards.
