Tina Fey, Pete Docter & Bailey Salwey AFI Awards Audi Scholarship winner for SOUL

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent

Probably the best thing about Award Season is when the scholarships are handed out for newcomers on the way up. SOUL is tipped for great things for 2021, but Bailey Selway's nod as a Cinematography Fellow from AFI Awards in association with Audi for SOUL will impact filmmaking in the future.

That's the goal, at least, when institutions like AFI help forge a path for upcomers. Kudos to Bailey Salwey. :)

LOS ANGELES, CA: AFI AWARDS celebrates SOUL with brand new content featuring actress Tina Fey and director Pete Docter. Fey accepts the AFI AWARDS honor on behalf of the creative ensemble and introduces the film to the AFI Movie Club audience, while Docter takes the audience “Behind the Scene” and talks about the influence of jazz and appreciating both music teachers and performers in the film.

 

 

 

“SOUL  is a modern movie miracle. This ambitiously imaginative burst of life finds the spark of spirituality in American cinema – and delivers it to audiences of all ages in equal parts entertainment and enlightenment. Pete Docter and his talented team at Pixar tackle issues of the highest plane – death, regret, acceptance – and place their answers in the talented voices of Jamie Foxx and Tina Fey. The alchemy that results invites audiences to look to the future without fear – and to find the joy in their soul.” -The American Film Institute.

The AFI AWARDS celebration is sponsored by Audi, a supporter of AFI programs for the past 17 years. To commemorate each of the AFI AWARDS recipients, Audi has created the AFI AWARDS Audi Scholarships initiative providing scholarships in the name of the honorees to women and BIPOC Fellows at the AFI Conservatory – for a total contribution of $250,000. Congratulations to Bailey Salwey, Cinematography Fellow, recipient of the AFI AWARDS Audi Scholarship in the name of AFI AWARDS Honoree SOUL.
