Toronto film critics announce 2015 award winners

As the year draws to a close, the Toronto Film Critics Association (TFCA) looked back and voted for its favourite movies of 2015. It announced its award winning picks on Twitter yesterday, celebrating films such as Carol and the haunting German language feature Phoenix with top honours.

Despite the social media bravado yesterday, the TFCA will be hosting an awards ceremony on January 5, 2016. That's also when the association will hand out the $100,000 Rogers Best Canadian Film Award - it's the "richest film award in the country," according to a TFCA news release.
