October 25, 2019 — Hollywood, California — The 9th edition of the Global Nonviolent Film Festival will take place from September 24 to October 4, 2020.
Global Nonviolent Film Festival is the most important and renown nonviolent film festival in the world and it takes place on its on-line TV Channel.
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 was founded by film director Bruno Pischiutta and producer Daria Trifu in 2012 to showcase nonviolent motion pictures and to show that these movies are not only capable of great international success but they are in high demand by the public as well.
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.
Here is what some of the filmmakers had to say about their experience at the Festival in 2019:
