ARULA Short Film Festival

ARULA is currently seeking short narrative and documentary films that explore political and/or social issues. 

 

The first annual ARULA Short Film Festival will showcase the best politically-themed short films from around the world.  ARULA brings political activism to the stage, to the street, and now…to the screen! 

The ARULA Short Film Festival will have its Los Angeles premiere on November 8 2017. All proceeds from the event will be donated to Planned Parenthood. Our jury members include writers, directors, producers, and studio executives. Awards will be given for the top Comedy, Drama, and Documentary short. Additionally, a Jury Award and Audience Award will be granted.

The top short films will also be showcased on the ARULA website.

We hope you will RISE UP with us by bringing your story to the screen!

 "TRANSPARENCY, TAXES & TWEETS"

On April 18th, 2017, ARTISTS RISE UP LOS ANGELES produced a night of music and comedy, to benefit the Southern Poverty Law Center.     
Many talented artists took the stage, including the evening’s headliner, “the Liberal Redneck,” Trae Crowder.  Transparency, Taxes & Tweets celebrated the union of actors, comedians, musicians and dancers, and the laughter that emanated from the audience was a welcome respite from the current political climate.
