'As with the all of the films we had at AFI FEST this year, the films in the competitive categories included really accomplished and inspired work from a diverse group of talented film-makers,' AFI FEST artistic director Rose Kuo said. 'I know the members of our jury had a particularly difficult time singling out one film.'
