I was a volunteer at the very first Global Peace Film Festival in Orlando. I was so excited that such an amazing idea and group of people came together to make that special event happen! Since that time, I have seen the GPFF grow, expand, and play an increasingly more significant role in our community and in our state. More than just a film festival, it has become a way to engage students, colleges, organizations, community members, and filmmakers in dialogue, discussion, education, outreach, and, most of all, in year-round community building on issues of peace, justice, environmental protection, human rights, equality and many other pertinent and critical issues. It has been a place for filmmakers to show their work and for them to engage directly with their audiences. I fully support and applaud the GPFF! It is just what our area needed. It is an asset to our entire state!

Having watched the Global Peace Film Festival grow over the last few years has been like watching a child become an adult overnight. The films, and fans, have come out of the woodwork to support this global effort and align us under one message, "How can we each contribute to a better world?" The leadership and vision have "thought big" from the start, and continue to grow their purpose with the solicited input from the community and those involved around the world. In a city that is generally not considered an epicenter for global peace, the GPFF team has created this film festival as a "must see" in Orlando.
