Grand Prix (Belgian Film Critics Association)

The Grand Prix is an award presented annually by the film critics from publications based in Brussels, Belgium.

The Grand Prix was introduced in 1954 by the organizing committee to honor the "film that contributed the most to the enrichment and influence of cinema".[1] In December of each year, the organization meets to vote for films released in the previous calendar year. To determine the nominations, ballots are sent in by the members – select knowledgeable film enthusiasts, academics, filmmakers, and journalists – and subsequently tabulated in order to decide the winner.
