The American Film Institute has announced a new international cultural exchange program aimed at marking the 20 year anniversary of AFI FEST and connecting filmmakers around the world. AFI Project 20/20 will include up to 20 filmmakers with movies playing at this year's festival (November 1-12 in Hollywood, CA). With support from a number of national organizations, the program will promote cultural understanding and nurture filmmakers, connecting the directors and their work with audiences at festivals and other venues around the world as part of an international tour that will also include events and universities and other institutions.
