AFI Film Festival

The AFI Film Festival; hosted from November 10th – 17th 2016 at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood, California. My AFI Experience It’s Monday night and I’m waiting in line to see the most recent Disney feature film, Moana. The line is very long and I’m wondering if I’m even going to get into the theater at all. Why is the line so long on a Monday night? Why is the show sold out? It’s because I’m at the annual AFI (American Film Institute) Film Festival, which is a free event that celebrates both Hollywood and independent films made throughout the world. So, my friend and I get to the door with just a few people in front of us. We’re so excited that we’re going to get to see this feature film before it even hits theaters.
