The Action On Film International Film Festival, also known as the Action On Film Festival, is a film festival currently held in Monrovia, California. It was founded in 2004, and it has been held in several different cities in California. Being a hub for many returning filmmakers each year, they have expanded as an Official Distributor to SHORTS.TV and they also program Feature Films at a number of Indie Theaters.[1]


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 was moved to Monrovia, California.[5]

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