Global Peace Film Festival of Orlando, at Rollins College, in 2015
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
What terrific way to spread the message of peace via film! This year, 2015, the Global Peace Film Festival (GPFF) will take place between September 28-October 4, at Rollins College, Winter Park, FL. It is the 13th GPFF in Orlando. To find the time/schedule and location of the showings, please click Here. To find films at this festival by category, please click Here.

To understand why and how some of the participants were motivated and became involved with Global Peace Film Festival, I’d like to share a TED talk (more specifically, TEDxOrlando talk) given by Marc Sardy in 2011, below. Following formative experiences in the Australian outback, the UK, Malaysia, France, and China, Marc Sardy became convinced that cinema can be a powerful tool to inspire and to motivate people to come together. Since 2005, he’s worked with Orlando’s Global Peace Film Festival in order to realize this vision of educating peace via cinema. The festival programming focuses on diversity. Films are selected for the potential they have in increasing understanding, awareness, appreciation, and action in bringing about a peaceful world. Without further ado, here is Marc Sardy, below:
