Awareness Festival promises by name to deliver programming with substance — and indeed it does, featuring films concerning environmental, societal and wellness issues. It is put on by Heal One World, an organization primarily dedicated to connecting people with chronic illnesses, but films such as Pollination and Women Are the Answer focus on topics like the surrogate industry and population control, respectively. The fest also will premiere Pressure, a film that explores the complex realities of suicidal ideation, with a Q&A to follow. All net profits from the event will go to charity, including partner organizations. Now in its seventh year, the fundraiser/fest is a valuable contribution to L.A.'s activist community.
