ASIFA-Hollywood is encouraging its members to try popular open source software programs for themselves and to participate in the online communities. In particular, ASIFA is recommending Audacity, Blender, Gimp, Inkscape, Krita, Notepad ++, Open Broadcaster, and Synfig. The goal is to foster better tools and art for everyone.

ASIFA members are encouraged to download and experiment with the software today at
