Earlier this week, the Southeastern Film Critics Association (SEFCA) announced its 2013 film awards. INDY Week contributors Neil Morris and Craig Lindsey are two of SEFCA's 51 voting members covering nine Southern states.

The big winner was 12 Years a Slave, which was selected as the year's best film. Director Steve McQueen won best director, Chiwetel Ejiofor was named best actor and Kenyan Lupita Nyong’o, a newcomer to American films, won Best Supporting Actress.

“While 12 Years a Slave was a clear-cut winner, the voting indicates that this is an exceptionally deep year for the movies,” SEFCA President Philip Martin said. “Eighty-one different films received votes.”

Mud director Jeff Nichols became the first two-time winner of the groups’ Gene Wyatt Award, a prize for films that “best evoke the spirit of the South,” given by SEFCA in honor of the late Nashville Tennessean film critic and charter member of the critics’ group.
