It's Friday, have a great weekend. What the heck???
I'll tell you what the Heck. That's a poster image from the new film RAG Doll by the amazing director Bailey Kobe. Here's the 411. 'Nora is that girl: the one who works overtime, helps out her family by all means, and leaves little for herself. She can't even fathom a love interest. But with her one free hour a day, she takes out life's hardships at the local mixed martial arts gym, where she is no longer who she is, if just for that hour.When complications in her real life cause it to crumble, she is lead to enter a championship tournament as a novice, but Nora must learn not just what she is fighting for, but what she is actually fighting against!'
The AOF Megafest is roaring along and we just added two new shows to this upcoming season which once again will take place in Las Vegas, the most exciting city in the world. Look for the incredible VENUS Film Festival and the brand new THE NEWS FEST. These two shows are unique in that for Venus anyone who enters must have a film, script, cast, crew, writer or director of Italian Heritage. The Italian Film is underserved and with this show, created by AOFers Kathrina Miccio and Alessandra Guarino, is planned to bring awareness and attention to the films made by and with Italian Talent.
Right beside the Venus Fest we will be hosting what we believe will be one of the biggest shows of its kind, THE NEWSFEST. 'The NewsFest is an exciting opportunity for News Professionals to present their work to an international audience! We invite all News Professionals - in front of the camera; behind the camera; Editors; News Scriptwriters; Photojournalists and others to submit their work.Students and Interns are also invited to submit. Winners in each category will have their winning entry televised in the local LA viewing area.' That description came directly from Newsfest creator's Laurel Adler and Tami DeVine who want to bring accountability, truth and exposure to the most important news stories and producers, directors, reporters, writers and on air talent.
