"HAMILTON transcends the definition of movies and television to rise up to the highest of art. This work of dazzling brilliance now exists for the ages – standing as a monument to America's founding fathers and an anthem to the power of art to tell our stories. In a year when many were isolated at home, this lavishly cinematic staging of Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical masterpiece invited the world to take a front row seat in the "room where it happens" and experience the multi-layered genius of this cultural juggernaut." -The American Film Institute.

The AFI AWARDS celebration is sponsored by Audi, a supporter of AFI programs for the past 17 years. To commemorate each of the AFI AWARDS recipients, Audi has created the AFI AWARDS Audi Scholarships initiative providing scholarships in the name of the honorees to women and BIPOC Fellows at the AFI Conservatory – for a total contribution of $250,000. Congratulations to Dahlia Hamdan, Producing Fellow, recipient of the AFI AWARDS Audi Scholarship in the name of AFI AWARDS Honoree HAMILTON.
