AFI AWARDS VIDEO ALMANAC

At the AFI AWARDS 2016 luncheon, AFI asked Amy Adams, Mel Gibson, Donald Glover, Chris Pine, Martin Scorsese, Denzel Washington and many other artists what they'd like you to remember about their movies and TV shows, and why movies and television matter now. This AFI AWARDS 2016 video almanac serves as a part of film history.

The interviews were filmed at the January 2017 luncheon, where each year the entertainment community celebrates the creative ensembles behind the year's most outstanding films and television shows.
