One of the goals of the AOF has been to produce projects for filmmakers and to showcase projects created by members of the AOF Team. Our first effort; the Award Winning SPLIT was released in October 2007, TAXI MAN was made in 2008 and in 2009 we will follow up with the new projects, KENDALL which stars Rick Peters, Brian Graham and Jean Lupien and SUICIDE ANNIE featuring the incredible European Talent, Ursula Vari. Both KENDALL and SUICIDE ANNIE will premiere at the 2009 AOF Festival.
While AOF produced projects are not eligible for AOF competition, the support of the AOF certainly allows these projects and others like them to attract the attention of major distributors, producers and other professionals in the industry.
Then we have the AOF Films that are created by our AOF Alumni. These filmmakers create film and video projects that are guaranteed to screen at the AOF Festival. To become an Alum all you have to do is have a project accepted in any previous year. We are building a family, a network and a support system that will help filmmakers gain exposure, make deals, further their careers and guarantee them a place to call home for their new projects.
