“This year’s best movies demonstrate that diverse stories, true and fantastic, are not only important to culture, but equally important to the business of movie-making,” said AAFCA President and Co-Founder, Gil Robertson, in a statement. “The noir movies that have an impact on our minds and hearts are also having a considerable impact at the box office. Our flagship film, ‘The Woman King’, bridges the gap between telling heartfelt, important stories and providing an entertaining experience for the moviegoing public. These true stories of black empowerment and achievement, like ‘Emancipation,’ ‘Devotion,’ and ‘Sidney,’ as well as fantastical tales like ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ and ‘Wendell & Wild,’ invite us to experience underrated pieces. of history together with our own imaginations. “AAFCA is proud to honor these masterpieces, along with the rest of AAFCA’s Top 10 Films of 2022, and recognizes their indelible impact on our industry and culture.”
