The Activist

Film changes lives. ACT NOW inspires film-goers to become educated and respond immediately to certain films and social issues in a positive and proactive way, inviting social and environmental change. Post-film, when you're feeling inspired, participate in hands-on opportunities to become more educated and be a vehicle of change—sign petitions, volunteer, make a donation, and find out ways that YOU can make a difference. Watch a film. Get Inspired. Make a Difference.
