Never has there been a more important time to stay diligent and have our eyes, ears, and hearts open to issues that affect everyone, directly or indirectly. This year’s selections highlight an especially diverse range of issues and give us pathways to action. Staying informed is no longer a luxury but a necessity – we need to stay loud about things that matter.
AFF will also host numerous World Premieres including We Are One with Forest Whitaker, Journey of Hope, Murder on The Reef and Eleven Arts Anime Studio’s Laws Of The Universe: Part 1 will celebrate its World Premiere on Oct. 6th, as the festival’s Spotlight Film.
Love & Bananas with Ashley Bell and John McCarthy will wrap up the 9th Annual Awareness Film as the closing night film.
