The American Film Institute has announced the official selections of AFI AWARDS 2004, AFI’s almanac which records the year’s most outstanding achievements in film and television, as well as significant moments in the world of the moving image.
AFI AWARDS 2004 is the only form of national recognition that honors the film and television creative ensemble as a whole-those people in front of and behind the camera-acknowledging the collaborative nature of film and television.
Unlike any other film or television award currently given, the AFI AWARDS 2004 selections were made through AFI’s unique 13-person jury process in which scholars, artists, critics and AFI trustees discuss, debate and determine the most outstanding achievements of the year, as well as provide a detailed rationale for each selection. Two AFI juries-one for motion pictures and one for television-convened in Los Angeles for two days of deliberation. The jurors have remained confidential until now.
AFI will honor the creative ensembles for each of the honorees at a luncheon sponsored by Ellen Tracy on Friday, January 14, 2005, at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles, California. The jury rationales for each selection will be revealed at this event.
