AFF wins FestForums
Best in Fest, 2017
The Animal Film Festival is honored to have been recognized by FestForums, a festival conference for food, beverage, music and film festival industry leaders, as Best of the Fests 2017, Film Charity. In the audience were Jeff Bridges, Ethan and Joel Coen, T Bone Burnett, Kenny Loggins and many more influential people of the film industry.
As a finalist for the award, the AFF provided FestForums with a 1 minute video highlighting the culture of the Animal Film Festival. When CAPE's rescued pig Rootie showed up on the big screen with his mouth full of hay, there was laughter throughout the audience.
AFF Director Shelley Frost was on hand to accept the award. "We were completely taken by surprise winning this award! But so honored that in our fifth year, the AFF event and the important films that we screen are seen as relevant and ground-breaking in the film festival industry."
