The American Film Institute announced today the AFI AWARDS 2021 reception will take place on March 11, 2022, at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. The celebration was originally set to take place on Friday, January 7, but was postponed in response to rising concerns over current health conditions.
The AFI AWARDS honorees include 10 outstanding films and 10 outstanding TV programs deemed culturally and artistically representative of this year’s most significant achievements in the art of the moving image. Additional honorees were selected in a category for “Special Awards,” designated for works of excellence that fall outside of the Institute’s criteria of American film and television. View full list of 2021 honorees.
AFI AWARDS was created in 2000 to recognize the films and television programs which contribute to our collective cultural legacy. Official selections are made through AFI’s unique jury process – in which scholars, artists, critics and AFI Trustees determine the most outstanding achievements of the year. With health and safety being top priority, AFI AWARDS 2021 will follow all COVID precautions and require all in-person attendees to be fully vaccinated.
