The National Board of Review Annual Awards Gala is set for Tuesday, January 7, 2014 at Cipriani 42nd Street

New York, NY (April 22, 2013) – The National Board of Review announced today that their annual awards gala will be held on Tuesday, January 7, 2014, at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City.

“There are so many exciting films being released this year by both established and up-and-coming filmmakers,” said NBR President Annie Schulhof. “From the biggest blockbuster to the most intimate independent film, we can’t wait to watch these diverse stories unfold and to share and celebrate these experiences together during our awards gala at Cipriani.”

The National Board of Review’s annual awards gala honors and celebrates the year’s best achievements in filmmaking with categories that include Best Picture, Best Director, Best Performances, Best Ensemble, Breakthrough Performance and Spotlight award as well as signature awards such as the William K. Everson Award for Film History, Freedom of Expression and Special Achievement in Filmmaking awards.

For over 104 years the National Board of Review has dedicated its efforts to the support of domestic and foreign cinema as both art and entertainment. Each year, over 250 films (studio, independent, foreign-language, animated and documentary) are viewed by this select group of film enthusiasts, filmmakers, professionals, academics and students. These screenings are frequently followed by in-depth discussions with directors, actors, producers, and screenwriters. One of the NBR’s core values is their belief in nurturing new and up-and-coming filmmakers by awarding grants to promising film students and facilitating community outreach to The Children’s Aid Society, The Ghetto Film School, Reel Works Teen Filmmaking, and Educational Video Center.
