On August 23rd, 2020, after four groundbreaking years of showcasing the best of independent fashion, film, art, and music, the heralded A Rebel Minded Festival (ARMF) will champion independent creators one last time at our 2020 virtual event.

The final ARMF will be a live-streamed celebration of creative expression, a salute to those visionary individuals who follow their muses to produce work that moves the culture and the community. ARMF 2020 will feature carefully curated work across the film, fashion, art, and music categories that aim to provoke thought and inspire. In addition, each category will feature highlights from previous years to acknowledge the growth and evolution of the ARMF platform and the many creators it has supported. 

We will be kicking things off with our selection of curated short films, followed by the fashion and art segment. The music segment will close out our festival. Attendees will have the opportunity to support the independent creators featured in the festival by making donations via links on the ARMF website.
