Brand Objective

The American Film Awards® Brand and its platforms are focused on creating diverse opportunities and jobs for the marginalized and disenfranchised population among Hollywood’s creative talent and for those in the recognized mainstream. Doors in Hollywood have always been shut. Every Hollywood studio is built like a fortress and its high walls and enormous gates are not a metaphor for keeping you out. The barriers to entry are real, dreams are broken every single day and great films fall through the cracks because the old system fails to see the beauty of unforced diversity. We are changing the way we should do business in Hollywood because our goal is to see the small story of an ordinary man or woman, make it to the bright lights of Tinseltown.
