7th Annual Artivist Film Festival & Artivist Awards
The Artivist Film Festival is now accepting film submissions!
Dedicated to addressing human rights, children's advocacy, environmental preservation, and animal rights, the Artivist Film Festival’s mission is to strengthen the voice of international activist artists while raising public awareness and funds for social global causes. Artivist strives for social change by bringing filmmakers and audiences together, raising awareness, instilling hope, and inspiring action.
Artivist unites the entertainment industry, the corporate world and non-profit organizations by rallying around a common goal of generating exposure and support for socially aware “Artivists,” directing the power of art, media and entertainment towards more responsible, compassionate and effective causes – starting right in the heart of Hollywood.
The highlight of the annual Artivist Film Festival is The Artivist Awards – a gala ceremony featuring a vegan reception that honors activist filmmakers and celebrities. In addition, Artivist selects some key films for a nation and international tour following the Hollywood event, and Artivist films have screened in London, Lisbon, Tokyo, Mexico City, New York and Washington, DC.
Speaking at the premiere of SUPER SIZE ME during the first Artivist Film Festival in 2004 at the historic Egyptian Theatre, director Morgan Spurlock aptly summed up the spirit and intent of Artivist when he declared “One person with one camera and one idea can change the world.”
If you’re ready to change the world, submit to the Artivist Film Festival by the final extended deadline of JULY 1, 2010!: http://www.artivists.org/node/10.
