LOS ANGELES, August 24, 2011 – AFI AWARDS 2011 records 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 — and is popular with talent because there are no winners or losers. The private luncheon is sponsored by Verizon Digital Media Services, at which AFI will honor the talented teams that created the 10 most outstanding films and 10 most outstanding television programs of the year. Marking the 12th chapter in the American Film Institute’s 21st century almanac, 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.
