The Action On Film International Film Festival, also known as the Action On Film Festival, was founded in 2004. It was held in California until 2017 when it moved to the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. As a hub for many returning filmmakers, AOF has become an Official Distributor to SHORTS.TV as well as programming Feature Films for a number of Indie Theaters.[1]

History[edit]

The Action on Film International Film Festival was founded in 2004 by Del Weston.[2][3] After being disappointed by a bad experience, Weston sought to create a festival where filmmakers could showcase their films.[4] It was first held in Long Beach, California as a part of the Long Beach International Martial Arts Championships. In 2008, it moved to Pasadena, California.[3] In 2012, it moved to Monrovia, California.[5] In 2017, it was moved to Las Vegas, Nevada.

The festival accepts all major genres and is not limited to action films.[2]
