The Global Peace Film Festival was a wonderful festival experience for me. My recently completed documentary, Finding Jenn's Voice, found engaged and interested audiences for both screenings. The organizers included the local domestic violence organization in our panel discussion, which turned into a passionate and animated conversation with the audience. As a filmmaker, I felt completely pampered by the wonderful organizers and volunteers. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of GPFF 2015!

As an independent filmmaker interested in community bridge-building and social justice causes, the Global Peace Film Festival was an ideal platform in which to share my work. This extremely well organized event brings together people from various backgrounds and interests to not only share films but to interact with one another on important issues in a constructive, engaging and positive context. The festival hosts and volunteers were unbelievably warm and welcoming and I look forward to going back to Orlando one day and experiencing their hospitality once again! Best Wishes!

I attended the screening of my film at the GPFF, along with one of the protagonists of the film, and we both were impressed by the presentation of the film. A knowledgeable presenter introduced the film and moderated a post-screening question and answer session. The films were well publicized, the filmmakers' transportation to the festival was subsidized, and the projection was well done. I hope to attend the festival as a spectator in the future to view more inspiring films about the many facets of peacemaking.

This organization encompasses all aspects of what you expect from a nonprofit....their entire mission is to create a better world. The film part of it is just the conduit used to help bring people together and create and generate ideas that better one person or an entire group. In doing so they also give back to the community where it is held by incorporating the students and local businesses. It is an enjoyable and encouraging experience and we are honored to have it hosted in our city.

I attended the 2015 GPFF representing our film 'Inside Peace' about men incarcerated in a Texas Jail who find their humanity through a peace class and start to turn their lives around. If peace can be found in prison, it can be found anywhere. When we first learned about the festival, we knew it was a perfect fit and our experience with the festival execs and organizers went beyond our expectations. From the initial communication, the attention to detail, the publicity they gave us, the quality of the booklet they created on all the films, offers for rides, to the staff of amazing volunteers, including wonderful students from both local high schools and universities and the connections they have with local peace organizations both civic and academic was an important blend resulting in a well run festival on a topic that surely should be at the top of everyone's list of important concerns. Bravo to GPFF for hosting and curating such a strong selection of diverse films on peace.

Global Peace Film Festival serves extremely important causes and informs American people what is really happening in the country and the world, and how we can live on this planet more peacefully. The festival was very well organized by very professional and hard-working staffs. Their selection of films touch the audience, including myself, profoundly. I hope they will be seen by more and more people in the future.

Global Peace Festival fills an important space by programming films that seek to raise consciousness and strengthen community ties. The films they bring together to show are consistently excellent and the event itself is well organized.

Enjoyed the short film and documentary that we saw. A little technical problem with one film caused a delay but in the end, we heard more from the film producer/director and it turned out to be a bonus. Being reminded of issues that lead to more justice and peace can only make our world a more peaceful place. High Five for the Global Peace Film Festival. We just need to get more youthful faces in attendance!

John Lennon said it best: Imagine! I spend a lot of time imaging what the world would be like if peace prevailed. children would never be fearful; landscapes would never be destroyed; people would never be maimed or killed by bombs and guns; and humankind might finally live together in an authentic compassionate and tolerant world. The Global Peace Film Festival is a substantiate initiative working to help us all realize we have much to do before our imagined world can become real. Thank you to the festival for being a continuing champion of that ideal.
