EVENT: The Awareness Film Festival
It's encouraging to discover how many people in this world want to make a difference. When I was hosting the Wanderlust "Yoga in the City" event, I met an amazing woman named Skye. She is from The Awareness Film Festival and she asked me if I would host their closing night. I quickly did my research and realized what an honor it would be to be involved. The event takes place this week in LA 7/25-7/28. The Awareness Film Festival awarenessfestival.org is a dynamic festival promoting the awareness of world issues. Bringing together filmmakers, artists, educators, environmentalists, alternative health practitioners and other industry professionals. The Awareness Film Festival aims to inspire the public through this engaging, entertaining and unique annual event in the film capital of the world.
Themes represented in this year’s films include: green and eco-friendly living, homelessness, gang/felon reform, veteran’s issues, cancer survival, GMOs, marijuana policy reform, couch surfing community, pilgrimages, mental health stories, vision loss, women’s issues; stories of hope, the arts, spirituality and current events.
