By working directly with filmmakers independent of budget, origin, style or genre we celebrate the art of film and filmmakers in addition to:
    -Setting high standards for quality film education and exhibition, placing artistic and cultural merit above commercial appeal.
    -Working collaboratively with filmmakers and producers to increase access to quality film arts, presentations, programs, and projects.
    -Enjoy the art of Action on Film in all of its glory from the delicate movement of the wings of a butterfly to a blazing shoot out on the streets of an inner city.
    -The festival takes place in Theaters and in other professional settings such as the beautiful Pasadena Playhouse, there is nothing wrong with festivals that showcase films in other types of venues but we believe that we must give our filmmakers and writers the best venues to showcase their work as possible.
    - Over the years people have come to understand that Action On Film does not just mean action films it means the action the filmmaker takes to bring his or her dream to the screen and the reaction of the audiences to that work.
    -Oh yeah, we love filmmakers and writers too

    The Action On Film International Film Festival has been honored with being named to many Top Festival Lists both Domestic and Internatioinal. Perhaps it is the free video interviews, or Black Tie Dinner and Award Shows or just the great way filmmakers and writers are treated. Whatever the reason, the AOF Team is proud to be acknowledged by MovieMaker Magazine and for being placed in such high regard as some of the world's other top film festivals.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    The Indie Fest is about helping independent filmmakers gain credibility and publicity. The primary goal of traditional film festivals is to bring entertainment to local audiences which makes filmmakers of secondary importance. The Indie Fest is not a traditional film festival, it is an international awards competition. Serving filmmakers is our first and only goal.
