artvist.jpgEvery year, the Artivist Film Festival selects three celebrated individuals who have contributed efforts to various causes and initiatives and helped bring about global awareness. Ted Danson, Alyssa Milano and Claes Nobel will be honored this year on November 11th, 2007 in Hollywood, California. With previous honors having gone to such activists as Daryl Hannah, Matthew McConaughey, Joaquin Phoenix, Mira Sorvino, Ed Begley, Jr., and many more, this current group is in good company. From the press release,

“Ted Danson for his work with American Oceans Campaign (AOC) creating awareness for life-threatening eco-hazards to our oceans and through his call for more government action. Alyssa Milano for her extensive work as a relief ambassador with UNICEF and her plight to raise public awareness for neglected tropical diseases faced by over one billion people world-wide. Finally, Claes Nobel, senior member of the Nobel family for his championship of causes related to environmental stewardship, earth ethics and youth outreach.”

Congrats to these three for their contributions to the above causes. Celebrities aside, it should also be noted that the Artivist Awards will honor various cultural creatives, organizations and documentarians who define the “Artivist mission”. For more information, jump here.
