• Each year in December, the St. Louis Film Critics Association bestows awards on those films that exhibit excellence in particular categories. The 2018 nominees are listed below.

  • Eligible films are those that opened in the greater St. Louis area during the 2018 calendar year, including those that were given awards-qualifying runs in 2017, but were not available to all StLFCA members until 2018. Films slated for release in the St. Louis area early in 2019 are also eligible if a press screening, DVD screener, or screening link was provided to all StLFCA members.

  • Lists of winners from previous years are linked at the bottom of the page.
