AFI AWARDS 2019, celebrating the year’s most outstanding achievements in film and television, will take place Friday, January 3, 2020. Each year, the event honors 10 films and 10 TV series for their contributions to the art form. At the luncheon, AFI will present jury rationales providing artistic and cultural context for the selections.
Marking the 20th chapter in the American Film Institute’s ongoing celebration of the moving image, the 2019 entries will join a notable group of previous AFI AWARDS honorees. View all past honorees here.
AFI AWARDS selections are made through a jury process where AFI Trustees, scholars, artists and critics determine the year’s most outstanding achievements and provide contextual rationales for each selection.
A supporter of AFI and its programs for the past 15 years, Audi is the Official Sponsor of the luncheon. The AFI AWARDS luncheon is also sponsored by American Airlines, the Official Airline of AFI.
