For the second time in four years I have
been invited by the leaders' of The Global
Peace Film Festival to have my film
The Nuclear Requiem be.a selection in the
2016m GPFF. The dedication by Nina Streich and Kelly DeVine creates an environment for the important and challenging stories to be told, such as my topic..the continuing. Present of nuclear weapons.

Global Peace Film Festival is the fiscal sponsor of our documentary FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO about the intersection of religion, sexual orientation and gender identity.
Working with them, it has been easy to collect tax-deductible donations from our supporters. We have benefited from the expertise of GPFF as relates to various aspects of the film such as grant writing and audience engagement. Our team also appreciates the mission of GPFF and how well it aligns with the films we are making. I feel this organization is really making a difference by exposing people to a wide variety of important global issues and solutions, as well as engaging them in change.
This is one of my favorite Orlando events. I love the scope of films offered as they address the subject of peace in such diverse ways. This year I saw a film about the relationship of 2 brothers, peace efforts in several international communities, several relevant films with LGBT themes, a local look at homelessness, and several solution oriented films. All were thought provoking. I love the access to filmmakers and the conversation with other filmgoers.
The Global Peace Film Festival was an inspiring, well put together festival that has a long future in front of it. The festival provides a platform for growth and change that I was lucky to be a part of.
I was just at the GPFF and had an amazing experience. The line up of films were exceptional -- representing communities from all parts of the globe. David Pavlosky and I presented our documentary PUZZLES: When Hate Came to Town to enthusiastic audiences -- and the Q&A following the screenings stand out as one of the most profound discussions we have had with this film.
The GBFF uniquely brings together filmmakers and audiences creating an environment that is thought-provoking, stimulating, entertaining, and fun--what a rare combination. The films I watched were diverse and inspiring. The panel discussions were informative and insightful...the audiences engaged and tuned in. Nina and Kelly are first-rate in every way, and Chris on the GPFF staff was top-notch. Looking forward to more Global Peace Film Festivals in the coming years.
Hi I'm Rick. About 5years ago I was privileged enough to be part of the global peace film festival. Our film the homeless documentary Take Me Home was selected that year. It's because of the global peace film festival, that millions have become aware of the issue of homelessness and who the homeless are. I can never say thank you enough to the director Nina and everyone else in this organization. If you want to the film, contact the organizers. Oh yes, I was homeless during the creation of the fil, and now I'm not because someone who saw the film was able to see the good in me. And helped me get off this street. Here's the good part. That lady who helped me, Tracy, we are getting married next year.
So glad I found this Film Festival very inspirational and rewarding.
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.
