Founded in 1995, The NY Film Critics Series (NYFCS)
has been an integral part of the film community with a rich history
and an exciting future. The NY Film Critics has gained the reputation
for outstanding service and commitment to customer satisfaction in
the greater NY/NJ region. With awards and recognition, our customers
see us as a source to fulfill their needs in the areas of presenting
independent film prior to release followed by a live discussion with:
cast, filmmakers and industry affiliates.
Featured Host: Peter Travers:
Peter is an American film critic, who has written for, in
turn, People and Rolling Stone. Travers also hosts a celebrity interview
show called Popcorn on ABC News Now and ABCNews.com. Travers joined
Rolling Stone in 1989 after a four-year stint with People. He's best
known for his basic writing style that eschews a more sophisticated
analysis for an easy-to-read and often very opinionated form. According
to efilmcritic.com, Travers is the nation's most blurbed film critic.
Peter has hosted the NYFCS™ for over 10 years. In addition to Rolling
Stone Magazine, ABC-TV, Peter appears regularly on Newsweek & The
Daily Beast, The Soho Apple Store, and CNN.
