THE 2020 EDITION OF THE FESTIVAL TAKES PLACE FROM SEPTEMBER 24 TO OCTOBER 4 AND IT IS OPEN FOR SUBMISSIONS!
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL:
Established in 2012, the Global Nonviolent Film Festival is the most important and renown nonviolent film festival in the world that takes place annually on-line on its TV Channel on Vimeo.
The 2020 edition will take place from September 24 to October 4.
During the Festival, for 11 consecutive days each year, viewers from all over the world are able to watch:
– full-length feature films & documentaries, shorts, animation films and music videos selected from all over the world!
– FREE daily video presentations of 4/5 films from the line-up, with introduction by festival director Daria Trifu and commentary by festival artistic consultant Bruno Pischiutta.
– FREE trailers of the selected films.
The trailers of the films and the daily video presentations remain available on-line, on the Festival’s Vimeo On Demand Channel, for one year after each edition ends.
The Awards given by the Jury are announced on the Monday following the last day of the Festival. The Award’s video presentation is available on the Festival’s TV Channel on Vimeo.
The Festival, founded by film director Bruno Pischiutta and producer Daria Trifu in 2012, showcases nonviolent films and demonstrates how those movies are not only capable of great international success, but are also in high demand by the public.
In 2016, the two founders made film and internet history by bringing the Festival on-line exclusively and allowing, for the first time, the world viewers to enjoy all the selected films from the comfort of their homes on the Festival’s TV Channel on Vimeo.
Filmmakers from every corner of the globe are invited to submit their films, documentaries (shorts, features, animation) and music videos to this vanguard on-line festival that showcases the best in nonviolent cinema.
For 11 consecutive days each year, the world viewers can watch the films selected at the Global Nonviolent Film Festival and enjoy them from the comfort of their homes. They can read about the filmmakers in the annual Daria! magazine and they can view, every day, the video presentations provided for every movie. This makes Global Nonviolent Film Festival the best place for producers to showcase their work.
All films submitted must be nonviolent: the Festival does not accept films that showcase explicit or graphic violence; implied acts of violence may be accepted if they are justified by the message of the film.
The Festival is IMDb-accredited and it accepts submissions via FilmFreeway, Film Festival Life and Click for Festivals.
Throughout the years, the Festival awarded new filmmakers and established film Stars such as Nicole Kidman, Woody Allen, Richard Gere, and Robert Redford. Some of the awarded films gained access to theatrical releases and have competed for Academy Award®’s nomination consideration.
Global Nonviolent Film Festival is owned and organized by Global Film Studio, a Canadian media company focused on ventures that are socially conscious and nonviolent.
