    Artivist Film Festival comes to London in March

    8th February, 2010 -  London, UK:
    After a successful run in Los Angeles, the 6th Annual International Artivist Film Festival comes to London from 5th - 6th March 2010 at the historic George Bernard Shaw Theatre, screening a selection of independent documentaries and short films.
    The Artivist Festival's mission is to strengthen the voice of advocate artists - 'Artivists' -while raising public awareness for social global causes. Since its inception in 2004, the Artivist Film Festival has showcased over 400 films, representing more than 45 countries around the world, reaching millions of people through film festivals in London, LA, Tokyo, Lisbon and Mexico City. Artivist has been endorsed by Claes Nobel of the Nobel Prize family, Amnesty International, and the United Nations Department of Public Information.
    The festival opens with critically acclaimed, award-winning documentary Children of War. This film is set in the east African country of Uganda and chronicles the daily struggle towards rehabilitation and reconciliation by a group of recently escaped child soldiers of the Lord's Resistance Army, one of the world's longest running and most brutal militias.
    Many films that have premiered at Artivist have gone on to great acclaim, including Academy Award winner Born Into Brothels, Academy Award Nominees Super-Size Me and God Sleeps in Rwanda, and the Los Angeles Premieres of Fast Food Nation, Emmanuelle's Gift, Stolen Childhoods, Zeitgeist, Zeitgest Addendum and Trudell.

    Diaky Diaz, Artivist Founder-President says: "We are really excited to be bringing the Artivist Film Festival to London. Raising awareness for the interdependence between Humanity, Animals, and the Environment is the true mission of Artivist. Filmmakers, celebrities and NGOs from around the world can gather to celebrate advocate artists that inspire positive actions in our global community."
    The Artivist Film Festival will be held from the 5th - 6th March 2010 at
    The Shaw Theatre, 100-110 Euston Road, London, NW1 2AJ.
