Honorees-Only Event To Take Place On January 13, 2023
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, Los Angeles, CA, August 11, 2022 – The American Film Institute (AFI) announced today the AFI AWARDS 2022 honorees-only event will take place on Friday, January 13, 2023, at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills.
Celebrating film and television arts’ collaborative nature, AFI AWARDS is the only national program that honors creative teams as a whole, recognizing those in front of and behind the camera. All of the honored works advance the art of the moving image, inspire audiences and artists alike, enhance the rich cultural heritage of America’s art form and make a mark on American society. When placed in an historical context, these stories provide a complex and rich visual record of our modern world. AFI AWARDS selections are made through a jury process where AFI Trustees, artists, critics and scholars determine the year’s most outstanding achievements and provide artistic and cultural context for the selection of each honoree.
Submissions and deadlines will be announced in the coming weeks. The honorees will be announced in December 2022.
