Film for Peace Initiative

RAISING AWARENESS


“Film for Peace” (FFP) is an experiential creative initiative to address the escalation of violence. All filmmakers are invited to submit a short film addressing the issue of violence that is informative, inspiring and entertaining. The key component of the festival is to raise awareness of the underlying contributing factors leading to violence, such as bullying, mental health, addictions, social isolation, poverty, rejections of minority groups, etc. Entrants will be judged on their ability to effectively communicate, through the medium of film, potential solutions to achieving sustainable peace as a community.
