Progress is achieved by those with the courage to reimagine the possible. Audi was born more than a century ago with a vision of boldly challenging the status quo and is bound by a promise to imaginatively innovate. That same progressive spirit drives Audi's iconic partnership with the nation's premiere film conservatory, the American Film Institute.

Marking 14 years as the presenting partner of the AFI FEST, Audi has collaborated with AFI to celebrate the history of the motion picture, honoring filmmakers and their work and educating the next generation of storytellers.

Inspired by a commitment to drive progress, Audi joined forces with AFI to expand the alliance by creating the Audi Fellowship for Women, which will support one female director for her entire two-year AFI Conservatory enrollment. The inaugural Audi Fellow, Natalie Camou, was introduced at the star-studded AFI Life Achievement Award luncheon this past June. She will join the ranks of AFI Conservatory Alumni such as Alexandra Kerry, David Lynch and Mimi Leder, who, like AFI and Audi, share a commitment to the transformative power of film.
