The Festival was launched in 2012 in Brasov, Romania. After four successful editions being held in the city of Brasov, the Festival transformed into an online event exclusively. It hosted its first and second such editions in 2016 and 2017 on its Vimeo On Demand Channel, making it a truly global event.

Over the years, the Festival launched new filmmakers as well as awarded Stars like Nicole Kidman, Woody Allen, Richard Gere, and Robert Redford; some of the films awarded gained access to theatrical releases and have competed for Academy Award®’s nomination consideration.

The Festival was founded by film director Bruno Pischiutta and producer Daria Trifu to showcase nonviolent, main stream motion pictures and to show that those movies are not only capable of great international success but they are also in high demand by the public.

The event has been recognized by the IMDB and all awards that are being handed each year are published there: IMDB Event

World viewers can watch any of the selected films at the time of their choosing and from the comfort of their homes. Until the Festival starts, the viewers may watch the trailers of most of the selected movies. Visit the Festival’s Vimeo On Demand Channel to watch the trailers and read details about each one of the films. The full versions of the selected movies will become available on September 20 and until October 2.

The organizers of Global Nonviolent Film Festival like to thank it’s partners: Global Film Studio, Toronto Pictures, Daria! magazine, InkTip, iPitch.tv, The Film Festival Doctor and Spanish Public Media from Chicago.

Daria! magazine will be published on September 10 and it will feature articles about the films and interviews with some of the filmmakers. Daria! will be available HERE.
