Congratulations to the AFI AWARDS Audi Scholarship Recipients
As the AFI AWARDS 2020 celebration wraps with a virtual benediction from AFI Life Achievement Award honoree Morgan Freeman, AFI would like to congratulate all of the AFI AWARDS Audi Scholarship recipients.
To commemorate each of the 21 AFI AWARDS recipients, Audi created the AFI AWARDS Audi Scholarships initiative providing scholarships in the name of the honorees to 21 women and BIPOC Fellows at the AFI Conservatory – for a total contribution of $250,000. See full list of scholarship recipients below.
The 21-day celebration on AFI Movie Club showcased the official AFI AWARDS selections and the AFI AWARDS Audi Scholarship recipients, and featured special guests introducing the titles and AFI “Behind the Scene” conversations with filmmakers and actors. A few of the filmmakers and actors that participated included Uzo Aduba, Riz Ahmed, Gillian Anderson, Lee Isaac Chung, Phoebe Dynevor, Jon Favreau, Tina Fey, Shira Haas, Ethan Hawke, Daniel Kaluuya, Regina King, Spike Lee, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Bob Odenkirk, Gary Oldman, Jurnee Smollett, Aaron Sorkin, Jason Sudeikis, Anya Taylor-Joy, George C. Wolfe and Chloé Zhao. The AFI AWARDS celebration was sponsored by Audi, a supporter of AFI programs for the past 17 years.
