The Kansas City Film Critics Circle named director Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave the "Best Film" of 2013. McQueen shared the "Robert Altman Award for Best Director" with Alfonso Cuaron (for the film Gravity). Cuaron has been a favorite of many critics groups this year.
Founded in 1967, The Kansas City Film Critics Circle (KCFCC) says that it is the "second oldest professional film critics" association in the United States" (behind the New York Film Critics Circle). The organization is composed of media film critics in the Kansas City metropolitan area. The KCFCC’s awards are named for the group’s founder, James Loutzenhiser, who died in November 2001.
On Sunday, December 15th, 2013, the Kansas City Film Critics Circle announced the winners of its 47th annual awards.
