AFI Fest Wrap Up and Gallery

This past week, Movieline had the honor of being a media sponsor at the glitzy AFI Fest in Hollywood, presented by Audi. There were splashy film galas every night, honoring the biggest films of the year like The Company Men, Love and Other Drugs, Black Swan, Blue Valentine, The King's Speech and Casino Jack. The categories of films in competition include World Cinema, New Auteurs, Young Americans, Breakthrough, and several categories of Shorts.
