Phoenix Film Critics Society

Founded in October 2000 by David Ramsey and Roger Tennis. We started with ten original members. The PFCS quickly gained attention from the major film studios and independent film distributors. One of the reasons for the recognition was that all members are established film critics in Arizona.
