The 6th Annual Artivist Film Festival opened this week in Hollywood bringing together films and audiences to raise awareness humanity, animals and the environment through activism.
This year the festival starts with eco-friendly and powerfull movie La Mission starring Benjamin Bratt and Jeremy Ray Valdez, directed and written by Peter Bratt. The film takes us to the heart of the Mission District in San Francisco as we follow the story of Che, his son Jesse, the new neighbor next door and the “Mission Boyz”, through a whirlwind of social issues.
With the help of Reel Green Media, La Mission was an eco-friendly set, from waste diversion to no water bottles and of course, green product placement.
The Artivist Film Festival takes place between December 1-5 at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood and will screen more than 40 short and feature films from around the globe. For more information, visit the official site here.
