Why he might be annoying:

    It is often confused for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (the group behind the Oscars).
    Jack Valenti served as one of its board members.
    This resume may probably confuse our Aussie readers, since AFI can also stand for Australian Film Institute.
    Because their organization is US-based, they usually overlook foreign-made films for the AFI Award's Top 10 Films of the Year.
    They also share their name with a rock band of the same name.

Why he might not be annoying:

    Like the Motion Picture academy, they are committed to preserving and celebrating the art of film.
    Many famous actors and directors such as Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep have been honored with an AFI Lifetime Achievement Award.
    Every year, they release a top 100 list of the best in film such as heroes, quotes and movies themselves.
    They also hold workshops and sponsor film festivals.
