6TH ANNUAL ARTIVIST FILM FESTIVAL

ARTIVIST has announced "La Mission" as its Opening Night Film for this year's Film Festival, taking place December 1-5 at the historic Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, home of the American Cinematheque. Screening over 40 independent, narratives, documentaries, shorts, and experimental films from around the globe, the festival concludes with The 2009 Artivist Awards on Saturday, December 5th. The festival’s mission is to strengthen the voice of advocate artists - "Artivists" - while raising public awareness for social global causes. Artivist is the first film festival dedicated to addressing International Human Rights, Children's Advocacy, Environmental Preservation, and Animal Advocacy.

At the conclusion of the Film Festival, Artivist awards a feature and short in each of these four categories. The Artivist Awards also honor those artists whose exemplary work in their community stands out as a shining example of one person's ability to change the world for the better. Past Artivist Award recipients include: Ted Danson, Alyssa Milano, Joaquin Phoenix, Matthew McConaughey, Mira Sorvino, James Cromwell, Ed Begley Jr, Tippi Hedren, and Mike Farrell. Since its inception in 2004, the Artivist Film Festival has showcased over 400 films representing more than 45 countries around the world. Artivist has reached millions of people with its film festivals in Hollywood, London, Tokyo, Mexico City, and Lisbon.
