The Austin Film Critics Association Announce their 2021 Award Winners

Including Jon’s Top 10 of 2021

With Cinapse being primarily based out of Austin, we like to remain entwined with local film related entities and events. We’re also very proud to have several of our contributors count themselves as members of the Austin Film Critics Association (AFCA), myself included. So their annual film awards are always of great interest, and usually holds some delightful surprises. The nominees, announced earlier this month showed some love for some less appreciated, but very worthy performances and films, and their list of winners also holds some surprises.

The winners announcement sees The Power of the Dog, Pig, and Drive My Car, take home some of the big prizes, along with a Best Actor win for Nicolas Cage in Pig, Best Actress going to Agathe Rousselle for Titane, Summer of Soul taking best documentary, and The Mitchells vs. the Machines winning best animated feature. Checkout the release below for the full list of winners, along with my own personal top 10 for 2021.
