Selected by Movie Insider as America’s “most original film festival,” the Action Figure Stop Motion Film Festival (formerly know as GI JOE FEST) was created in 2005 by Gio Toninelo to celebrate the dying art form of stop-motion while paying tribute to the world's favorite posable toy: THE ACTION FIGURE. The Film Festival hosts screenings, competitions and workshops to showcase the best work within the genre. AFFF kicks off in Denver before traveling to cities around the world.
The mission of the Awareness Film Festival is bringing awareness and to open eyes to some of our world's pressing issues: Ecological, Political, Health/Well Being and the Spirit. We showcase both Documentary and Narrative Features, as well as Short Films, Music Videos and Public Service Announcements. We have filmmaker Q&A's, filmmaker Panels, as well as conscious art and music.
