The AFI is now accepting entries for the 2011 Samsung Mobile AFI Awards in all categories: Short Animation, Short Fiction Film, Documentary, Television and Feature Film.
The AFI Awards are held each year to celebrate excellence in Australian film and television. These are the most prestigious and recognised screen entertainment awards in Australia. The recent and continuing successes of local content, on big and small screens alike, is already generating significant anticipation ahead of what’s likely to be another intensely competitive awards season.
AFI Chair, Alan Finney, said of this year’s call for entries:
“Preparations for the 2011 Samsung Mobile AFI Awards are well underway, as we get ready to host the AFI Awards in Sydney for the first time in over a decade. 2011 is shaping up as another exhilarating year for the screen industry, with an exciting string of films and television series in production. Following the international success of Australians at the Oscars, BAFTAs and Emmys, and with the AFI Awards moving to Sydney, this is an especially important year for the AFI and the Australian screen industry.”
