The festival, dedicated exclusively to independent music videos, first aired last year, and is the brainchild of two well-known film companies from Vancouver, Canada, Cinestir Productions and Rumbletone Productions, and Directors Nicole Steen, Marcus Rogers and Frank Yahr. This year, hundreds of videos were submitted from which 50 were selected for a festival tour, which started in Canada and worked its way down the West Coast. Viewers from Vancouver, Victoria, Toronto and Seattle selected their 25 favorites and those were then packaged in a Best of Fest that Justice Through Music will present at the AFI in the Washington, DC area.
