Based on recent global events, COVID19, federal and state mandates, and circumstances beyond our control, many of our vendors and partners COULD NOT provide their business or service to us.
In response to these developments, and with very heavy hearts, the AOF MEGAFEST has postponed the 2020 event until 2021. Other local festivals such as Anthem and Electric Daisy carnival have canceled their events entirely. We fought postponing up to the very last moment and we are deeply saddened by the turn of events. All accepted 2020 works will be screened live during the combined 2020/2021 event that will run 7.26.2021 to 8.1.2021. 2020 Award winners will be honored at the live award show that is dedicated to them. Seminars, after-parties, events, screenings, and the film market will all be live.
Thank you for your understanding.
Stay safe, stay healthy, keep creating and
God Bless you all!
