The 16th Annual Action On Film International Film Festival has launched a number of careers and continues to use aggressive marketing to bring even more attention and success to filmmakers and writers from around the globe.

The Sixteenth Annual Action On Film International Film Festival and Writer’s Event is truly the festival of the independent filmmaker and writer. Located in the beautiful tourist town of Las Vegas, Nevada, The AOF Megafest is the perfect combination of the creative energy of the creator and the energy of Vegas. The event is scheduled for 7.23.2020 – 8.2.2020.

Action On Film means ’The action a director takes to make his or her vision come true and then the reaction to that effort by the audiences who watch it”. Sure, we love action films, but we get just as inspired by Comedy, Drama, Animation, Documentary and Experimental Projects.

The Action On Film International Film Festival celebrates creators of all levels, talent, and backgrounds and honors their work by screening their films in some of the most gorgeous cinemas in the world. The Action On Film International Film Festival offers screenings and opportunities that no other festival does.

Ok, we hear ya. How do they do it year after year? 

First of all, they care. Next, the Annual Action On Film International Film Festival only screens your projects in the finest theaters in the world. The theaters are state of the art with huge screens, lots of seats, great projection, and is in a beautiful location, Las Vegas, NV. Don’t forget that The 16th Annual Action On Film International Film Festival also has great parties.

Great sponsors and support

The AOF Fest works directly with some of the biggest sponsor partners in food, entertainment, and hospitality. AOF launched a line of Books about their filmmakers and writers and are direct distributors for a number of aggregators including Shorts.tv. They also feature their television interviews on the Del Weston Action On Film show which airs US wide.

Support for filmmakers beyond the festival

The Action On Film International Film Festival honors their filmmakers with brilliant awards and prizes in one of the biggest and most exciting award programs. The AOF charity events include more than money. The AOF Fest makes sure that you and the kids they support really connect. Dollars are great, but they believe human experience beats money every time.

A good home cinema makes a serious difference in watching movies. But there’s much more to creating a home cinema than just installing the right equipment.

Bridging the gap

The Action On Film International Film Festival is the voice of the independent creator. 

The gap between the industry and the indie filmmaker is bridged at The Action On Film International Film Festival by offering access to both a free film market with top “trusted” distributors and access to celebrity guests like Debra Kara Unger, Nick Mancuso, Harry Lennix, Eric Bana, Mark Ruffalo, John Savage, JJ Perry and many others.

We could all do with a little inspiration on the home theater front – or at the very least, a little home viewing setup porn until we can get our shit together to make our own cinematic hideaway. Whichever it may be, here’s our ranking of the ten craziest home viewing setups online.

Building a community

The Action On Film International Film Festival is more than the 10 day event. The Founders, Directors, and staff support, promote and encourage worldwide connections amongst the MegaFest Family throughout the year and beyond.    

The AOF Channel from NBC , Del Weston’s Action On Film (on Time Warner Cable, Champion Broadband, Peg Media, YouTube and Vimeo), Social Media, and The MegaFest Magazine are all promotional avenues available to selected filmmakers and writers. The exposure is priceless.

When an excellent artistic expression is brought to the film, it deserves recognition at an international platform. The top 5 honors a film can get.

This week, the Sundance Institute renewed its agreement with IMDbPro’s online submission service Withoutabox to handle its applications until 2021. This is just one of Withoutabox’s long-term agreements that shut out competition from the likes of its rival FilmFreeway, which does not push for exclusivity.
