The third annual Artivist Film Festival & Awards opens in Los Angeles, CA tomorrow.

Artivist is the first international Film Festival dedicated to addressing Human Rights, Children's Advocacy, Environmental Preservation, and Animal Rights. Its mission is to strengthen the voice of international activist artists - "Artivists" - while raising public awareness for social global causes.

Artivist honors filmmakers from around the world whose work addresses the importance of art and activism in our global community. This year’s program highlights a broad range of topics including energy, conservation, gay marriage and the conflict in the Middle East. The hot ticket for the event is the Los Angeles premiere of Fast Food Nation, featuring Director Richard Linklater and author Eric Schlosser.

The 2006 Artivist Awards ceremony will take place on Sunday. Awards will be presented to international feature and short films in the categories of: International Human Rights, Environmental Preservation, Animal Rights, and Children's Advocacy. Artivist is also honoring Honoring Joaquin Phoenix, Daryl Hannah, Matthew McConaughey, and other “artivist? celebrities.

According to their website, the Artivist organization is working to expand their reach, soon launching the “Artivist Network.? The goal of Artivist Network is to combine the film festival, awards and a new Internet portal into a nationwide community working to create real change.
