We’ve just signed on a few new festivals, and we’re getting more and more excited about the months ahead! One such festival is the Global Peace Film Festival taking place from September 18, 2012 – September 23, 2012. The festival represents a growing network of global change festivals that are becoming increasingly popular as they grow in both number and content. Festivals like this, apart from our much-established love of film festivals, remind us why the push to make festivals as accessible as possibly is worth any trouble it might present.
A little about this festival, from their website:
The Global Peace Film Festival was established to utilize the power of the motion picture to further the goal of peace on earth. With a mission to expand the definition of peace beyond anti-war, ideology, activism or specific causes, the Global Peace Film Festival films and events suggest a more personal message as reflected in the daily lives of individuals and communities the world over.
The GPFF presents films from around the world and global discussions that highlight the power of this extraordinary medium as it relates to new peace issues. See films from around the world, attend educational panels, meet filmmakers and special guests and hear from local activists about their work. And get involved!
GPFF will be holding a screening event at Urban Rethink this Sunday night, and you’re invited! Head out to both support the festival and learn more about how you can be an influence on both the GPFF and the world. For more information visit the festival webpage or email GPFF at email@example.com.
