The 2020 edition of AFI Docs will be held online on their website.

Formerly called Silverdocs, AFI Docs was founded in 2003 by American Film Institute and Discovery Channel. Usually it is held in Silver Springs, Maryland and in Washington D.C., always in the month of June.

This year, due to the Covid-19 outbreak, it will be online from 17th to 21th June.

The award Short Film Jury Prize is of interest, because AFI Docs is an Oscar Qualifying festival for Documentary Short Subject.
