2014 American Film Institute (AFI) Top 11 Movies and 10 TV Programs

The prestigious American Film Institute has announced its Top 11 Movies and Top 10 TV Programs of 2014. AFI is a national institute providing leadership in screen education and the recognition and celebration of excellence in the art of film, television and digital media. AFI Awards honors the most outstanding motion pictures and television programs of the year, while AFI's "100 Years . . ." series has ignited extraordinary public interest in classic American movies. AFI's Life Achievement Award has become the highest honor for a career in film.

AFI is guided by a prestigious Board of Trustees, chaired by Sir Howard Stringer, and a Board of Directors, chaired by Bob Daly. It is led by President and CEO Bob Gazzale. The organization is comprised of key figures from the entertainment, business and academic communities. Membership is open to all.

If a Top 11 list sounds unusual, well, it is. This is the first time in their history that the AFI has decided to name 11 films instead of 10. It's certainly a tribute to the quality of this year's crop if they couldn't narrow it down by just one more. Bravo for breaking with tradition.
