LA Online Film Critics Society

Los Angeles is commonly referred to as the Movie Capital of the World and is the home to hundreds of film critics.

Film criticism is a huge part of the film industry and before LAOFCS there was only one critic group that represented the Los Angeles area. Scott Menzel saw this as quite a disadvantage and had the idea to create a new film critics society that would feature a group of members that would accurately represent the city of Los Angeles as a whole.

The Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society focus is on bringing together a diverse group of film critics that accurately captures the viewpoints of all backgrounds, not only in Los Angeles but across the United States.
