Two acceptances in one week! That’s pretty darn good 🙂 This one is out in California but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to attend at the moment. The festival takes place August 17-26, 2012 at the Krikorian Premiere Theatre, which is located at 410 S. Myrtle Ave. Monrovia, CA. Here is some more info about the Action On Film International Film Festival:
“The Action on Film Festival aims to promote artistically and culturally significant film arts through education and exhibition in an atmosphere of unity for the entire AOF family of filmmakers and writers. We do this to enrich the life of the community, filmmakers and of course individuals who pursue careers in front of and behind the camera. By working directly with filmmakers independent of budget, origin, style or genre we celebrate the art of film and filmmakers in addition to:
-Setting high standards for quality film education and exhibition, placing artistic and cultural merit above commercial appeal.
-Working collaboratively with filmmakers and producers to increase access to quality film arts, presentations, programs, and projects.
-Enjoy the art of Action on Film in all of its glory from the delicate movement of the wings of a butterfly to a blazing shoot out on the streets of an inner city.
-The festival takes place in Theaters and in other professional settings such as the beautiful Pasadena Playhouse, there is nothing wrong with festivals that showcase films in other types of venues but we believe that we must give our filmmakers and writers the best venues to showcase their work as possible.
– Over the years people have come to understand that Action On Film does not just mean action films it means the action the filmmaker takes to bring his or her dream to the screen and the reaction of the audiences to that work.”
