Seattle Film Critics Society PNW Award Nominees
December 5–9, 2023
The Seattle Film Critics Society (SFCS) is an association of professional critics working to facilitate a community that supports local productions and festivals; enhances public education, awareness, and appreciation of cinema; and strengthens the bonds of critical dialogue as it pertains to the cinematic arts. Since 2022, the SFCS has honored Pacific Northwest filmmaking as part of our annual awards. To celebrate the many talented filmmakers who call our region home and who produce work here, a nominating committee considers films released throughout the year whose primary production was in the Pacific Northwest (Washington, Oregon, or Idaho) and selects five finalists. The winner is determined by a vote of all SFCS members.
