American Film Institute (AFI)

About / History :
AFI Awards records (in december) each year's most outstanding achievements in film, television and other forms of the moving image arts. The honorees-only gathering is the only form of national recognition that honors the creative ensemble as a whole — those in front of and behind the camera. The private luncheon honors the talented teams that created the 10 most outstanding films and 10 most outstanding television programs of the year. AFI Awards honorees are selected by a unique jury process comprised of experts from across the moving image communities — including scholars, critics, film and television artists and AFI Trustees.

AFI was created to protect and preserve the legacy of the moving image art form so that future generations will have a greater understanding and appreciation for the proud heritage reflected in the realities of a new modern day.
