Since 2003, the Global Peace Film Festival has used the power of the moving image to further the cause of peace on earth. From the outset, the Festival envisioned “peace” not as the absence of conflict but as a framework for channeling, processing and resolving conflict through respectful and non-violent means.
We believe that people of good faith have real differences that deserve to be discussed, debated and contested. It is our mission to connect expression – artistic, political, social and personal – to positive, respectful vehicles for action and change.
Each year, our program is carefully curated to create a place for open dialogue, using the films as catalysts for change.
