The New York Film Critics Circle announced today it will be adding three new members to vote for the 2022 awards on Friday, December 2, 2022, and important upcoming dates. Films released in 2022 will be considered. 

New members include Siddhant Adlakha, Freelance; Soraya Nadia McDonald, Andscape; and Nick Schager, The Daily Beast, bringing the total active members of the group to 42.

The New York Film Critics Circle will hold its annual Gala Awards dinner on Wednesday, January 4, 2023 at TAO Downtown. Jordan Hoffman serves as the 2022 Chairperson of the NYFCC, Matt Singer serves as Vice Chair, and Stephen Garrett continues as the group's General Manager.
 
"I'm thrilled to add Siddhant, Soraya, and Nick to our roster this year, and looking forward to their input in our upcoming vote, and at our year-round projects, like our ongoing screening series NYFCC at The Paris Theater," Hoffman said.

He added, "it's been another exciting year of filmgoing in New York City with an array of exemplary movies to choose from for our awards. Of course, we haven't seen everything yet and there's always catching up to do, so do your local film critic a favor and leave 'em alone for the next month or so—it's a very busy time!"
 
Founded in 1935, the New York Film Critics Circle is the oldest critics group in the country, and among the most prestigious. The NYFCC's membership includes critics from daily and weekly newspapers, magazines and the web's most respected online publications.
 
Every year the organization meets to vote on awards for the calendar year's films, among the first of the major groups to pronounce its winners. Oftentimes the NYFCC's selections pave a path for Awards Season, while other times their picks stand proudly independent from other organizations. The group's awards dinner in early January is also considered a kick-off to a new year of glamorous events in New York City.
