Updated June 20, 2017 Dear Activists, The first annual Colorado International Activism Film Festival (CIAFF) event is being held at The Bug Theater, 3654 Navajo St., Denver, Colorado, from 2 – 10 PM, Saturday, July 15th, 2017.
In order to ensure the widest distribution for your activism-related film, music, art, photography, and screenplays, there’s no admission fee to attend this exciting new activism event. Donations are welcomed in advance (Call 720.298.1524) and at the door. All donations will go directly to award-winning filmmakers, writers, musicians and artists. We’ll also have a “goodie bag” waiting for you at the door when you participate in our special ticket arrangement with FilmFreeway and order the VIP Festival Pass for $1.00.
The festival is not geared toward any specific political party, like Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, Constitutional, or Green Party, so you could say that it’s nonpartisan. The festival is not geared toward any specific religion, so you could say it’s nondenominational.
Our emphasis is “fundamental rights.” We’re totally open to learning what that phrase means to everyone and how it translates into activism across the various sociopolitical spectra for our local planetary cultures and countries. Of course, if you have ideas and information about how this topic translates across the galactic and extragalactic spectra, we’d love to hear about that, too! Peace to all sentient beings! Find more rules and guidelines.
We would like to showcase films that explore all of the topics you might find at Top Documentary Films and Films for Action. We would also like to showcase some types of controversial films that do not find coverage typically in the mainstream. Being Coloradans, mostly, our orientation is necessarily and distinctly “American”. You can find lots of topics we have found of interest in the past at our sister project, Musicians4Freedom.com.
We are looking forward to engaging our audience in polite and reasoned discourse in the spirit of artistry and open-mindedness!
Here’s some activism categories to get you started thinking. More to come….thanks for your patience! Also, we would love to hear from you with artistic ideas for posters and marketing. Text/call 720.298.1524. See you soon!
