As you are probably aware, I have been an original charter member of the Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle since its inception in 2016. Since that time, our group of critics has grown exponentially, and we've given out our annual years three times now. When we awarded Spike Lee three awards last year for BLACKKKLANSMAN, he used our accolade in the "For Your Consideration" ads the film ran in the Hollywood Reporter and Variety during Oscar season.
You may have also noticed that our URL is chicagoindiecritics.org. That's a much shorter and catchier moniker, and thus, our group has officially changed our name to that. So, from now on, we are the Chicago Indie Critics. You can follow all 20 of our critics here at our redesigned website: https://chicagoindiecritics.org
Oh, and here's our spiffy new logo!
