Join us for the first time in history as creative artists who suffer from a host of what could be debilitating disabilities, challenge, fight and overcome in order to share their stories with the world.
Had enough of traditional film festivals and events that don't understand your specific needs and concerns when it comes to your work? Are you looking for a way to tell your stories and a professional arena in which to showcase what you do and how you do it? Do you want to engage with tons of your peers, industry professionals, experts and artists who can help you move to the next level?
Then The Conquering Disabilities With Film International Film Festival is for YOU.
it's your turn
YOUR TIME HAS
The playing field has never been level but because one person refused to accept her situation, things are moving in the right direction.
Art for arts sake is wonderful but art with a purpose makes all of the difference in the world. We know this and that is why this festival was born.
Seven years ago, Amy Leigh McCorkle began her festival run with some of her first work and not only did she find acceptance, accolades and awards; but she found her voice and every year since then; she has made strides to help others who suffer but still want to create.
WHO IS THIS SHOW
If you suffer from any emotional, mental or physical disability, if you are the family member, care giver or someone who teaches or works with folks who live with disabilities then this show is for you.
We accept written word, poetry, scenes, scripts, shorts, films, docs, music videos and artwork.
You deserve to be seen, to be heard and to be honored. And, we do it with Seminars, Parties, Red Carpets, Award Shows, Mixers, Pitch Sessions and more.
We urge you to take a moment to learn more about the show and when you're ready for your close up, give us a chance to become a part of your creative history and future!
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 hybrid 2020/2021 event that will run 7.26.2021 to 8.1.2021. All 2020 Award winners will be honored at the live award show in Las Vegas that is dedicated to them. Seminars, after-parties, events, screenings, and the film market will all be live in Las Vegas.
Thank you for your understanding.
