Global Peace Film Festival

SAVE THE DATE! September 21 – 26, 2010

Now in its eighth year, the GLOBAL PEACE FILM FESTIVAL draws together filmmakers and filmgoers from all walks of life into a community of people inspired to take action in their daily lives to leave the world a more peaceful place than they found it. The GPFF seeks to create a festival that will reflect a broad definition of peace, based on Dr. Martin Luther King’s statement: “Peace is not only the absence of conflict but also the presence of justice.”

High school students attend special screening at the Global Peace Film Festival.

We define peace very broadly and include categories not usually associated with a “peace film” festival. For instance, we have programmed Sci-Fi and comedies in previous festivals and love to see different takes on these subjects. We are looking for narratives that tell stories from around the world; stories that address the issues of poverty, injustice, violence, greed and fear – fear of people who are different, who will take our jobs, who don’t believe in our god. “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” might be an inspiration. We are looking for works that illustrate in a thousand ways how peace can be achieved and how it gets destroyed.

We are seeking films on subjects and issues including:

  • Global peace
  • Conflict resolution
  • Peace activism
  • Environmental issues
  • Water & Oceans
  • Inter-generational stories
  • Music/Art & peace
  • Providing safe environments for children and families
  • Community mediation
  • and any other topics that affect the struggle for peace
