'Artist', 'Cafe de Flore' top Vancouver Film Critics Circle Awards

Cafe de Flore
Slow and steady wins the race.

The Vancouver Film Critics Circle announced the winners of their annual awards tonight. I had to cull this list together from a few sources, as the circle lacks an official site or Twitter feed. The awards are pretty good, with Oscar frontrunner The Artist nabbing two awards including Best Picture. Vancouver is also the only critics group to hand out prizes for Canadian films as well (I think), but as befits Canadian film, only one Canadian actor actually won, which was Christopher Plummer in the American film Beginners. Well deserved nonetheless! Cafe de Flore scooped the prize for Best Canadian Film and David Cronenberg won Best Director. The list is finally complete, with those elusive kudos in the supporting categories being released by the Vancouver Sun.
