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.

Closing of the 2014 Festival and Workshops – Videos

Brasov, Romania — September 18, 2014 – For immediate release
The International Film Workshops 2014, organized by Daria Trifu and taught by film director Bruno Pischiutta in English language, ended on September 14 with the graduation ceremony of the 13 Romanian and international students who have attended the third edition of the program in Brasov, Romania. At the ceremony the students received their Certificates of Attendance. This was also the last edition of the Workshops, due to the fact that the courses have been filmed and will be distributed worldwide on DVD, which could be produced in several languages and give, in this way, access to the Workshops to many young talents worldwide without coming all the way to Brasov. The Workshops offer the necessary theoretical knowledge to start a film career, at international level, as film actors, film writers, film directors and film producers, and were completely free for the students.
