Look Back at AFI FEST 2015’s Cultural Supporters

This year, many cultural supporters helped celebrate AFI FEST 2015 presented by Audi. These guests included consul generals, cultural representatives and filmmakers hailing from 15 countries, proving that the love of world cinema can speak one language.

Events such as the Awards Brunch, the Filmmaker Welcome Dinner, the Francophone reception and the YOUTH reception for Paolo Sorrentino allowed our various cultural supporters to mingle with fellow diplomats, filmmakers and members of the industry.
