awfjlinklogoThe Alliance of Women Film Journalists (AWFJ) is pushing its year end award schedule back a bit, so that the winners of the 2014 EDA Awards will be announced in January, rather than in December, as they were last year. 2013′s earlier schedule was set in consideration of the Olympics fervor that commanded audience attention.

As in previous years, the EDA Awards will recognize and honor outstanding achievement for Best Film, Best Director, Best Actress and the other ‘Best’ categories presented by other awards groups. Additionally, AWFJ stands out with it’s signature categories, such as ‘Actress Most in Need of a New Agent,’ ‘Best Nudity,”Hall of Shame’ and other distinctive AWFJ EDA Awards classifications.

AWFJ voters are a consortium of top female film critics, reporters and commentators working in print, broadcast and online in the United States, Canada and United Kingdom.

In addition to the year end celebrations, AWFJ presents EDA Awards at film festivals throughout the year. On the roster: Edinburgh International Film Festival, Salem Film Fest, St. Louis International Film Festival, Sheffield Doc/Fest and Whistler Film Festival. EDA Awards have also been presented in conjunction with MoMA’s 25th Anniversary Retrospective of POV Programming on PBS.
