Global Nonviolent Film Festival is Open for Submissions and Announces 2019 Dates

“We’re fighting world violence one film at a time!” – Daria Trifu, Festival Co-Founder & Director


October 18, 2018 — Hollywood, California —
The 8th edition of Global Nonviolent Film Festival will take place from September 19 to September 29, 2019. Submissions are now open.

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 that 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 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.

Submit Your Film via FilmFreeway:

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.

In 2018, Global Nonviolent Film Festival showcased 32 features, documentaries and music videos from 20 countries. The daily films’ presentations were recorded by Bruno Pischiutta and actress Christie Norton who was also featured on the poster. The Jury awarded 21 deserving films and filmmakers. Here is some of what the participants had to say about the event:

“In such turbulent times, it is refreshing to work with such an experienced film festival that focuses on the important issues we face today. Thank you for giving a platform to so many filmmakers not following the Hollywood hype and telling stories in alternative ways. We look forward to our continued collaboration in the future.”Marco Orsini, executive producer of the music video and of the documentary “Dangerous Crossings” / “Dangerous Crossings: The Making of a Campaign” that were produced in cooperation with the United Nations’ High Commissioner for Refugees (UNCHR); awarded “Best Music Video” and “Best Short Documentary”, respectively, at the 2018 Festival.

“The Global Non-Violent FF is one of the world’s best on-line festivals as it is run by a passionate team whose communication is outstanding. They are one of the most organized and easy to cooperate with festivals and treat each film with the greatest respect, care and attention.”Rebekah Smith, founder of The Film Festival Doctor

“The Global Nonviolent Film Festival is unique in its choice of subject matter, showcasing films with positive messages. Because these themes are so thought-provoking, the Festival performs its important objective of spreading these messages around the world. It is fascinating, too, to see different ‘takes’ on similar subjects from the world’s film makers.”Peter Williams, awarded Best Director in a Feature Documentary 2018 for “A Century of Coal”

“Thank you for an amazing experience!! Your “worldwide” format for this festival gives great opportunity for film makers. An unforgettable time for sure!! Thank you again.”Donald Miller, awarded Best Production in a Feature Film 2018 for “If I Could Run”

Global’s unique presentation will no doubt grow into a cinematic wave for film festivals in the future.”Bo Boudart awarded Best Documentary in the Feature Documentary Category 2017 for “Paying the Price for Peace: The Story of S. Brian Willson”
