PROGRAMMING INITIATIVES

EDUCATION

Traditional teaching methods through our workshops, panels and seminars that convey prominent information and knowledge seeking to empower the A.F.I. audience.

ARTISTIC EXPRESSION

A diverse cross-section of multi-cultural films, fine art, music, theatre and dance that cultivate creative expressions.  

COLLABORATION

In order for us to achieve our goals we must work together. We create environments where individuals can come together and create resources. Our goal is to utilize the arts to empower one another while also garnering the support needed in order to continue artistic growth and development. 

ACCESS

Networking events and exhibitions designed to provide attendees access to today's industry insiders that assist in creating distribution and employment opportunities.  It is also an opportunity for emerging and mid career fine artists to mingle amongst buyers, collectors, interior designers, and film set designers.

RECOGNITION

Through our film competitions and showcases, the festival recognizes and rewards artistic achievement by independent filmmakers, fine artists, theatrical actors, dancers, and musicians. We are proud to be a focal point for all talent to come together under one umbrella.
