In its 4th year, the Awareness Film Festival takes place each summer in Los Angeles and runs Thursday, July 25, through Sunday, July 28, at venues conveniently located in and around downtown Santa Monica. The Awareness Film Festival’s motto is “Films That Do More Than Entertain” and its mission is bringing awareness and to open eyes to some of our world’s pressing issues: Ecological, Political, Health/Well Being and the Spirit. They showcase both Documentary and Narrative Features, as well as Short Films, Music Videos and Public Service Announcements. They have filmmaker Q&A’s, filmmaker Panels, as well as conscious art and music. The Awareness Film Festival was formed by Heal One World, a non-profit charity. This Festival is also a fundraiser for Heal One World. Any net profits from this event will go completely to charity, including their partner organizations.
Here are just some of the many compelling films covering a wide range of issues at the festival. You can see the full schedule here:
