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, we will also continue our tradition of signature categories, such as ‘Actress Most in Need of a New Agent,’ ‘Best Nudity,”Hall of Shame’ and other distinctive AWFJ EDA Awards classifications.
Our voters are Alliance of Women Film Journalists membership, a consortium of 91 of the top female film critics, reporters and commentators working in print, broadcast and online in the United States, Canada and United Kingdom.
In addition to our year end celebrations, AWFJ presents EDA Awards at select film festivals throughout the year. Edinburgh International Film Festival, Salem Film Fest, St. Louis International Film Festival, Sheffield Doc/Fest and Whistler Film Festival have been on our festivals roster. We have also presented EDA Awards in conjunction with MoMA’s 25th Anniversary Retrospective of POV Programming on PBS.
