Speaking of Vanelle, we were talking today about exactly what the AOF MEGA FEST is and what it is, is GROWING. That's right, people are reaching out all of the time asking how they can add their film festival or writer's event to the MEGA FEST roster and believe it or not, it's pretty simple. If you have a new or existing show that you'd like to bring to reality or see as a Live Event, simply contact theresa@actiononfilmfest and get the information you need to become a new partner festival. While we have stringent guidelines, we plan to be the biggest film and writers event in the world; that was our purpose in moving to Las Vegas in the first place.
