The American Film Institute (AFI) has added its voice to the lists of the best of 2012 in both films and television. The annual AFI Awards recognizes outstanding work in both mediums, with the group “acknowledging the collaborative nature of the art form. Honorees are selected based on works which best advance the art of the moving image; enhance the rich cultural heritage of America’s art form; inspire audiences and artists alike; and/or make a mark on American society.”
 
“AFI AWARDS celebrates America’s storytellers as collaborators,” stated Bob Gazzale, AFI President and CEO. “We are honored to bring together artists as a community, without competition, to acknowledge the gifts they have given the world in 2012.”
