The 8th Annual Awareness Film Festival is set to return this year on October 5 through October 15 with its unique and stimulating program celebrating ecological, health/well-being, political and spiritual films from all around the world.

Taking place at The Regal Cinemas in L.A. LIVE, the Awareness Film Festival has continued to grow and to help promote change in the world on a socio-economic level. This year will not only include screenings of incredibly inspirational and thought-provoking films, but will also play host to filmmaker Q&A’s, panel discussions, live music, speakers, artists, parties, and a virtual reality showcase.

The Awareness Film Festival is delighted to announce it’s Opening Night and La Premiere Gala featuring Show Me Democracy and Lisa Vanderpump’s ("Bravo’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills") short documentary The Road to Yulin, as well as Closing Night film Adele and Everything After. The festival will also play host to the short film Chasing Titles (starring Brian Austin Green), Francesca Eastwood’s Rebel in Rising, HARE KRISHNA!

And after all the action, filmmakers and guests are welcomed to experience the hit of Sundance Film Festival - Awareness Film Festival’s Zen Den which focuses on rejuvenation and transformation. The Zen Den will be presenting wellness classes including yoga and tai-chi.
