AFI Awards 2007 Selections Announced
Monday, December 17, 2007)
On December 16, 2007, the American Film Institute, commonly known as AFI, announced its official selections for the AFI Awards 2007.
AFI AWARDS is the only recognition that honors the film and television creative ensembles as a whole -- those both in front of and behind the camera -- acknowledging the collaborative nature of film and television.
"AFI was established 40 years ago to educate and to honor great American film artists. AFI AWARDS does both -- it celebrates the achievements of these 20 extraordinary ensembles and through the HP scholarships in their name, the program invests in the next generation of storytellers," commented AFI's President and CEO Bob Gazzale in a prepared statement.
AFI will honor the creative ensembles for each of the selections at a luncheon sponsored by Hewlett-Packard on Friday, January 11, 2008 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles, California. The luncheon is by invitation only.
