ter info... met vr. grr.. rini hartman The Artivist Film Festival is the first festival dedicated to addressing social, global, political, animal rights and environmental issues through Film, Visual Arts & Music. Our mission is to strengthen the voice of international activist Filmmakers & Artists - "Artivists" - while raising public awareness and funds for global social causes. Art can be a powerful medium for social change by bringing people together, raising awareness, instilling hope, and inspiring action. We seek to unite the entertainment industry, the corporate world and nonprofit organizations towards a common goal of giving exposure and support to socially aware Artivists. The time has come to direct the power of art, media and entertainment towards more responsible, compassionate and effective uses starting right here in Hollywood. Each year, we will bring several key issues to the forefront. This year we are highlighting Children's Advocacy, International Human Rights, Animal Rights and Environmental Issues. The Child Welfare League of America, Witness, The Humane Society of the United States and Greenpeace have been selected and will be recognized and honored for their contributions to these causes. All net proceeds from the Festival go towards supporting these organizations in continuing their charitable work. The Artivist Film Festival premieres on April 22, 2004, the internationally recognized Earth Day, and runs for 7 days culminating in an Awards Gala for Artivists and our chosen charities. This year, the Festival will be held in the renowned Egyptian Theatre in the heart of Hollywood.
