BY Sydney Arts Guide | 04-Feb-2015
On Monday 2nd February 2015, the Film Critics Circle of Australia (FCCA) announced the nominations for the 2014 FCCA Awards.
The nominations for Best Film of 2014 are The Babadook (producers Kristina Ceyton and Kristian Moliere), Charlie’s Country (producers Rolf de Heer, Peter Djigirr and Nils Erik Nielsen), Predestination (producers Paddy McDonald, Tim McGahan, Michael Spierig and Peter Spierig), Tracks (producers Iain Canning and Emile Sherman) and The Water Diviner (producers Troy Lum, Andrew Mason and Keith Rodger). 

 Leading the FCCA nominations with nine nominations is The Water Diviner, followed by The Babadook and Predestination both with eight. Five nominations have been awarded to Charlie’s Country, Felony, The Rover and Tracks. The awards have been spread over twelve films that were released across Australia, during the 2014 calendar year. FCCA President and ABC Radio host Rod Quinn said, “This year’s nominees show the diversity of the Australian film industry – from a scary movie set in a haunted house, to a modern day epic, and stories that cover our entire continent. The filmmakers nominated include the biggest names in Australian film and many talented newcomers.” The 2014 FCCA Awards Ceremony will be held from 6.30pm on Tuesday 10th March 2015 at Paddington/Woollahra RSL, Oxford Street, Paddington, NSW. 

Limited tickets are available to purchase, and this industry event, is only for members and their guests. During the ceremony there will be a tribute to three eminent members of the FCCA who have recently left their long term positions … Evan Williams who has retired from his position as film critic for The Australian, and Margaret Pomeranz and David Stratton who have departed their 28 year television careers as hosts of SBS TV’s The Movie Show and ABC TV’s At The Movies. 

 The FCCA is grateful to Awards sponsors FOXTEL, UNIVERSAL PICTURES, ACS, AGSC, FILMINK, KARMEE COFFEE, AUSTRALIAN WRITERS IN PRINT and CURRENCY PRESS.
