St. Louis Film Critics Association

St. Louis Film Critics, an association of professional film critics operating in metropolitan St. Louis and adjoining areas of Missouri and Illinois, was founded in late 2004.   Then, as now, the goal of the association is to serve the interests of local film critics, and to promote an appreciation for cinema both as an art form and for its societal, cultural and historical context and impact. The organization works to encourage film appreciation in the St. Louis area; raise St. Louis' profile as an area that appreciates cinema; foster communication between film critics and film educators and historians; and to raise the profile of film art in the St. Louis area.
