ABOUT THE FESTIVAL:

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.

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 also in high demand by the public.

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 works with FilmFreeway, Withoutabox, FilmFestivalLife, Reelport and ClickforFestivals.

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.
