Membership, BFCA

Membership Requirements

Thank you for your interest in the Broadcast Film Critics Association.

Applicants for BFCA membership must be working film critics whose coverage of a broad range of films in current theatrical release is broadcast or distributed on a regular weekly basis to a wide audience on Television, Radio, or Online.

  1. Entertainment reporters or celebrity interviewers who are not also film critics do not qualify.
  2. Radio critics must be broadcast on a station in a major city or have several additional outlets in a number of cities.
  3. Online critics must be the primary critic on their site (BFCA admits only one critic per site)

All applicants must:

  1. Have a history of at least one year of reviews on their current site
  2. Demonstrate that they review movies on a regularly scheduled weekly basis
  3. Review a broad range of films rather that specific genres such as superhero, animated or blockbuster films
  4. Furnish independent, authoritative, and verifiable metrics for their reviews, ideally via Google Analytics
  5. Include current, clearly defined and reliable directions to their reviews, whether links, mp3s or specific web
  6. Be prepared to present clips of their work at our request.
  7. Understand that professional behavior is mandated.  Acceptance is at the discretion of the board, as is expulsion.
