It's that time of year again, just ahead of the most prominent awards for film and TV from the various institutions that honor the entertainment industry. This year is no different as the AFI kicks off the major accolades with it's yearly listing of the top Films and Televsion shows of 2013.

According to the American Film Institute, in its 14th yearly listing, “Honorees are selected based on works which best advance the art of the moving image, enhance the rich cultural heritage of America’s art form, inspire audiences and artists alike, and/or make a mark on American society.”

The Selections are made by a panel consisting of scholars, film and television artists, critics and AFI Trustees. This year’s panel, one for film and one for television, were chaired by producers and AFI board of trustees vice chairs Tom Pollock for the movies and Rich Frank for television.

Jury members included Jon Avnet, Anne V. Coates, Roman Coppola, D.C. Fontana, Nancy Meyers and Noah Wyle; film historian Leonard Maltin; scholars from universities (Princeton, Syracuse, USC, Wesleyan); AFI board of trustees members; and critics from Entertainment Weekly, The Huffington Post, Rolling Stone, Time, TV Guide, USA Today and others.

AFI will honor the creative ensembles for each of the selections at an invitation-only luncheon on Friday, Jan. 10 (2014).
