Founded in 2003, our mission is to raise awareness for international human rights, children’s advocacy, environmental preservation, and the humane treatment of animals through film, music, and community action. What began as a Film Festival and Awards Show 10 years ago evolved into a platform for guiding the public “From Awareness to Positive Action” by connecting our audiences to more than 100 Organizations, where they can actively participate in positive change.
