Announcing its choices for the best films of the year via Twitter, the New York Film Critics Circle named The Central Park Five,  directed by Ken Burns and daughter Sarah Burns with David McMahon, as the best non-fiction film of 2012.

David France’s How to Survive a Plague took the honor for best first film. It’s the first time a documentary has been awarded by the organization in that category.

Last year, Werner Herzog’s Cave of Forgotten Dreams took the award for best non-fiction film.
