In a noncompetitive atmosphere, honorees will gather on January 5, 2018, for recognition at the annual AFI AWARDS private luncheon in Los Angeles, CA — an event favored by the entertainment community for its informal intimacy and its inclusive acknowledgement of excellence. At the luncheon, AFI will present jury rationales providing artistic and cultural context for the selection of each honoree.
The AFI AWARDS luncheon will be sponsored by Audi, a supporter of AFI and its programs for the past 14 years. Earlier in 2017, as part of its pioneering commitment to AFI and to drive progress, Audi created the Audi Fellowship for Women to support one female director for her entire two-year AFI Conservatory enrollment.
