PFCC Logo DarkThe Philadelphia Film Critics Circle (PFCC) is an organization of dedicated and talented film critics from Philadelphia and its surrounding suburbs.

Our members love experiencing movies, just like you. What makes them even happier is sharing their insights with the rest of the world. Maybe it’s the next great blockbuster. Maybe it’s the year’s biggest bomb. Our members give you the information you need to decide for yourself.

The mission of the PFCC is to promote awareness of our industry to the wider viewing audience through engaging commentary, discussion and education. We are also committed to doing what we can to advance both Philadelphia’s rich film history as well as its thriving film festivals and events.

Founded: March 8th, 2017
