The American Film Institute Awards selections are made through AFI’s unique jury process – in which scholars, film and television artists, critics and AFI Trustees determine the most outstanding achievements of the year. AFI AWARDS was initiated in 2000 with the aim of recognizing the films and television programs which contribute to our collective cultural legacy.
A uniqueness in its celebration of the film and television arts’ collaborative nature, AFI AWARDS is the only national program that honors creative teams as a whole – recognizing those in front of and behind the camera. When placed in an historical context, these stories archive a complex, rich, visual record of our modern world – the American Film Institute’s ongoing chronicle of the moving image in the 21st century, and an “almanac” of the art form in a given year.
However, the AIF management has released a date for Television submissions must be in by Oct. 20 at 5 p.m. PT. Film submissions are a week later, on Oct. 27. Honorees will be announced Dec. 8, and the awards will be given out in January.
According to the release, the honorees are selected by a jury process comprised of experts from across the moving image communities. This includes film and television artists, scholars and critics, as well as AFI Trustees.
