Plus, that sentence was probably taken directly from wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argentine ... ssociation
"The Argentine Film Critics Association is a member of the International Federation of Film Critics, also known as FIPRESCI" - That's wrong. In fact, there are two film critics associations and two awards:
- Asociación de Cronistas Cinematográficos de la Argentina: The oldest and more inclined towards mainstream.
- FIPRESCI Argentina: Founded in 1999 and more inclined towards arthouse.
The first one would be an Argentinean equivalent of USA's National Board of Review and the second one of National Society of Film Critics. Well, FA scornfully say that ACCA's awards are more like the Golden Globes.
