AFT Awards: Best Opening

This is the twenty-second category of the 2nd Annual AFT Film Awards to be announced. The AFT Awards are my own personal choices for the best in film of each year and the best in television of each season. The AFT Film Awards include the traditional Oscar categories and a number of additional specific honors. Nominees are pictured in the order I’ve ranked them.

The winner:
Reprise wove a wonderful story with its opening hypothetical tales, fully describing the lives and intersecting paths of its characters in mere moments with a dazzlingly clever and brilliantly edited introduction..

Other nominees:
A Christmas Tale proved it really was a fairy tale with its fun and holiday-spirited opening play and musical accompaniments. Waltz with Bashir didn’t waste any time, rushing some pretty scared animated dogs at the camera. Slumdog Millionaire got right to it with exciting music and an intensely memorable title display. Tell No One started the way great thrillers do – with a serene night scene that was anything but calm and ultimately quite violent.
