Recognizing the year’s most outstanding achievements in the art of the moving image, AFI AWARDS is the American Film Institute’s annual almanac of excellence — celebrating works of significance in both film and television.

Submissions for AFI AWARDS 2016 are now being accepted online at AFI.com until 5:00 p.m. PT on October 20 for television and 5:00 p.m. PT on October 27 for film. Honorees will be announced on December 8, 2016, with an invitation-only luncheon to follow on January 6, 2017.

Favored by artists and entertainment executives for its intimacy and collaborative recognition, the annual gathering is the only form of national appreciation that honors the creative ensemble as a whole — those in front of and behind the camera — and is popular with honorees because there are no winners or losers. AFI will honor the talented teams that created the 10 most outstanding films and 10 most outstanding television programs of the year at a private luncheon in Los Angeles.

Marking the 17th chapter in the American Film Institute’s 21st century almanac, AFI AWARDS honorees are selected by a jury process comprised of experts from across the moving image communities — including film and television artists, scholars, critics and AFI Trustees.
