American Film Institute Recognizes Video iPods
December 28, 2005
The American Film Institute (AFI) has recognized the emergence of video iPods and other portable video players as a noteworthy event of 2005.
Each year, AFI recognizes Moments of Significance as part of its AFI Awards. Six noteworthy events were determined to have had a significant impact on the world of the moving image during the calendar year 2005.
AFI's awards note the emergence of portable, on-demand video. Three events in particular are highlighted:
"In the wake of the popularity of digital video recorders, these technological breakthroughs meet the consumers' needs for content on demand, but also move the receipt of visual storytelling more dramatically toward an isolated experience, to the point where watercooler phenomena may soon be a term of the past," notes AFI.
AFI AWARDS 2005 selections were made through AFI's unique 13-person jury process in which scholars, artists, critics and AFI trustees discuss, debate and determine the most outstanding achievements of the year, as well as highlight these significant events that shape our culture. Two AFI juries -- one for motion pictures and one for television -- convened in Los Angeles for two days of deliberations.
