The Alliance of Women Film Journalists is pleased to announce the winners of the 2022 AWFJ EDA Awards. In our 16th annual awards season, we present EDA Awards in 25 categories divided into three sections, the BEST OF AWARDS, FEMALE FOCUS AWARDS AND EDA SPECIAL MENTION AWARDS. We were especially pleased to see our EDA Award nominations show strong representation of women filmmakers in all EDA Awards categories, including non-gender specific categories, and not just those in the FEMALE FOCUS section. Nominees in each category are determined by AWFJ members who submit nominating ballots. There are currently 95 AWFJ members who vote for the EDA Awards. The full membership list is accessible here. You can see the full list of nominees here. And the 2022 EDA Award winners are:
