A Different Way to Awards & Distribution

www.globalcinema.online

A unique pay-per-view channel showcasing films & documentaries that do not contain gratuitous violence. Available worldwide!

“This movie channel, in keeping with our company’s brand, is here to bring to the world viewers nonviolent visual content for years to come. As a matter of fact, the primary source of our content is the Global Nonviolent Film Festival where we have direct access to films that don’t contain gratuitous violence, and are rich in quality and topical importance.

Global Cinema Online fills a void in the field of video-streaming services, and offers to the public films that give them the possibility to learn more and to open their mental horizon. From now on, every film selected at the Global Nonviolent Film Festival will receive worldwide distribution with very favorable financial terms through Global Cinema Online.

I believe that our formula is right, and that it makes for a win-win situation for all parties involved: the public, the filmmakers, and our company”, says Film Producer Daria Trifu.

“Global Cinema Online is on the right path. The channel will grow in time because it gives something that the viewers want. There are older and very big streaming channels like Netflix, Hulu, Apple and Amazon out there, but they don’t exclude violence, as we do. A lot of people will love the movies we show will watch our films”, says Film Director Bruno Pischiutta.


Global Nonviolent Film Festival is the most important and renown festival of nonviolent films in the world.

The Festival is in business from 10 years, it is recognised worldwide, and it offers the best virtual platform to showcase films, documentaries and music videos to distributors, media executives, and the general public, while competing for awards and recognition!

All films selected are featured in DARIA!, the arts, entertainment & business magazine established in 2005.

All awards are listed and they are connected to each film’s page on the IMDB.

Each selected film is introduced – with commentary and trailer – in the Daily Video Presentations provided throughout the 11-day event. The Video Presentations remain available on the Festival’s Streaming channel after the event ends in order to provide long-term promotion to the participating films.

IndieActivity is a media partner. The magazine provides complete coverage of the Festival. Following the event, IndieActivity Magazine conducts and publishes exclusive interviews with each filmmaker of the awarded films.

The Making of Global Cinema Online: An Achievement to Be Proud Of

By Bruno Pischiutta

April 11, 2021

In my long life, I have been privileged and lucky to reach several achievements: some of my performances and movies got important awards and I had the opportunity to work often with excellent colleagues and artists. What I did in the film industry gave me great satisfactions; most of it was regarding the writing of screenplays, the making of films and film companies. Now, in this very bad period of pandemic, a time when it is almost impossible to produce films and have a normal working activity, I’ve been very lucky again for achieving something that, just a short time ago, was highly improbable: I am talking about Global Cinema Online, an OTT (Over The Top) media streaming channel that, for the first time changes ways and terms used in the film industry and gives some new and necessary choices to viewers and filmmakers everywhere.

Before analyzing certain aspects of Global Cinema Online, I wish to point out that my role in the making of this OTT streaming channel for films was a small one, in the same way that my role in creating the Global Nonviolent Film Festival – the most important and renown nonviolent film festival in the world – was a small one too: it is true that Daria Trifu and I had the idea to create the Festival and the Global Cinema Online streaming channel, but Daria is the real creator and operator of both these two divisions of our company.

I’m the chairman of Global Film Studio and Daria is the president of the company. My principal jobs are deciding what products we put in production and the actors we contract with our Agency, as well as arranging the financing for the company. Besides that, I write most of the screenplays and I direct most of the films we make. Daria’s jobs are taking care of all what is necessary from the administrative point of view to run the company. She produces and executive produce most of our film products, designs, writes (most of the content), creates and publishes the annual arts, entertainment and business magazine DARIA! (Established in 2005), runs the Global Nonviolent Film Festival, and now runs Global Cinema Online, this new OTT streaming pay-per-view channel for nonviolent films.

Since the Covid time started – in March of last year – and until today, I worked in film financing and in preparing our next productions; Daria worked on the making of Global Cinema Online, we both worked on DARIA! magazine, and on organizing and hosting the Festival that will celebrate its 10th annual edition from September 23 to October 3 this year. In this period, I was privileged to be able to follow, day by day, Daria’s difficult work in making the streaming channel, and to consult her on a continuous basis about the choices and decisions that were essential in bringing Global Cinema Online to reality.

Global Cinema Online is user friendly and the films are organized by continent: European Cinema, North American Cinema, Asian Cinema, South American Cinema, African Cinema, and Australian Cinema.

I’m proud to announce that, on April 15, the Global Cinema Online movie channel will go live at this link:

globalcinema.online

For the first time in the history of the world’s film industry, two facts become a reality:

  • It is common knowledge that many people, especially in Canada and in Europe, are viewing less and less films because the catalogs of the existing streaming services contain many films with gratuitous violence, low quality films and films that don’t provoke thought but just empty entertainment. Starting on April 15, English speaking viewers in all corners of the world will be able – for the first time – to choose films, documentaries, animation films, docudramas, TV series, music videos and films made by women from a catalog of high quality nonviolent products. As a matter of fact, these films were previously selected at the Global Nonviolent Film Festival, they don’t contain gratuitous violence, and they have the quality and topical importance required at our Festival;
  • From now on, every film that will be selected at the Global Nonviolent Film Festival will be proposed worldwide distribution with very favorable financial terms trough our streaming pay-per-view channel Global Cinema Online.

I’m proud of the little role I played in making Global Cinema Online a reality, and we all should be very grateful to Daria Trifu for this achievement, because the two facts above are game changers.

The first fact betters the experience of the intelligent viewers who wish to see films that give them something from an emotional point of view, or that give them possibilities to know more and to open their mental horizon.

The films shown on Global Cinema Online may have acts of violence, if they are essential to the plot. What we are against is the gratuitous violence in film, not because we believe that everybody who watches a violent film will commit some act of violence in real life, but we have to think that, when a violent film is seen by a multitude of people, there can be some individuals who are particularly influenceable and already on the edge. It is a known fact that, when a big TV Network airs a film about suicide, the number of real suicides increases. The same of what we think about violence we think about sensuality and scenes with sexual content. The films shown on Global Cinema Online can contain sensual scenes and can deal with a subject on the edge, but every scene in the film, every visual part should be necessary to the plot, nothing should be there for commercial purposes only.

The second fact is extremely new in the industry and a big help for the filmmakers; it makes it more simple for filmmakers to become universally recognized and financially independent. If their film is selected at our Festival – the Global Nonviolent Film Festival, it will receive a non-exclusive and profitable proposal of worldwide distribution through Global Cinema Online.

I believe that Global Cinema Online is on the right path in the present time. The channel will be born in few days and it will grow in time because it gives something that the viewers want. There are older and very big streaming channels like Netflix, Hulu, Apple and Amazon out there, but they don’t exclude violence, as we do. I believe that a lot of people will love the movies we show and a lot of viewers will watch our films. I’m proud of this; even if my role in the making of Global Cinema Online was small, I believe that the fact that I cooperated in bringing it live is one of the biggest achievement of my life.
