In its 10th year, Harlem is programming some great films and events for its milestone year.

Awareness Fest (this year at LA Live, downtown) is run by the non-profit charity Heal One World and champions social-impact cinema intended to inspire audiences and help catalyze positive change in the world.

Purchase tickets now as seating is limited and stay updated with news and cool content on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

For the investors and IndieGoGo supporters awarded tickets to the premieres on both coasts, please expect an email from Brad Raider's assistant, Anna Atwater, who will help coordinate. 

I was so excited as I got this email from Brad Raider today. It's so cool that Kensho will be at the Harlem International Film Festival. I joined the festival during my first visit of New York City to watch Kathryn's The Vanishing City.

Barefoot Theatre Company celebrated the 2015 Vassallo Awards with a Spring Gala at the American Ballroom Theater in Manhattan. The ceremony, hosted by VH1's Ellie Lee, honored artistic achievement as well as mentorship and educational outreach to the younger generation of artists in memory of Ed Vassallo. Vassallo's career spanned 20 years and included work producing for the LAByrinth Theatre Company and volunteering with the 52nd Street Project.
Actress Anna Chlumsky (VEEP) was unable to attend due to family obligations, but sent a video message accepting the 2015 Vassallo Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Arts. She thanked Barefoot Theatre Company for "taking a chance" on her when she relaunched her acting career in 2005.
Actress Liza Colón-Zayas presented Pulitzer prize-winning playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis (Riverside and Crazy) with the 2015 Vassallo Award for Outstanding Achievement in Playwriting. Guirgis spoke of how Vassallo inspired him and other artists to get out there and create art, rather than just talking about it.
Playwright Lucy Thurber presented Daniel Talbott of Rattlestick Playwrights Theater with the 2015 Vassallo Award for mentorship. Talbott said: "when I think of mentorship, I think of family."
Barefoot also saluted Kamilah Forbes of Hi-Arts with the Educational Outreach Program Award which her colleague Tiffany Vega was on hand to accept.
The Gala also included a performance of "Waiting for Waiting For Godot" by Mike Reiss, Emmy and Peabody award-winning writer for The Simpsons. Directed by Barefoot Theatre Company founder and Artistic Director Francisco Solorzano, the short play stars Jerry Adler (Larry David's Fish in the Dark), and Margaret Ladd (Falcon Crest) along with Barefoot Theatre company members Maia Sage, Jennie West, Daniel K. Isaac, Jeremy Brena, and Kenneth King.
Barefoot founded the awards after Vassallo lost a two-year battle with cancer in 2014. The company was inspired to recognize Vassallo's dedication to the arts, which included work producing the TENN99 and NYNY festivals for the LAByrinth Theatre Company as well as feature films which saw release at the Tribeca Film Festival and IFC/Sundance Selects. Vassallo's passion extended to work as a mentor with the 52nd Street Project, which pairs New York City children and teens from with professional theatre artists. For this reason, the awards acknowledge not only artistic achievements but also educational outreach and mentorship that engages the next generation of artists.

The Vassallo Awards were sponsored by Sixpoint Brewery, American Ballroom Theater & Barefoot Studio Pictures.
