what an honor the artivist film festival was! this film festival marries art and activism and has the most interesting films that actually make a difference. kristen bell was the honoree and her friend rachel bilson introduced her. they were both lovely and sweet and smart and well-informed. i have to say i was very impressed with kristen bell's commitment to vegetarianism and to animal welfare and to the environment. she's not only beautiful, but she has a brain and is committed to justice and making this world a better place for all. i was one of the few ladies wearing pants and boots, though i did manage to rock my canvas stella mccartney boots...and how do you like my side braid?!! please check out the festival and watch these films online, they are really worth the effort. these FILMMAKERS are CHANGING lives. xo, am all photos: billy bennight.
