Global Nonviolent Film Festival Reveals 2019 Official Poster

May 16, 2019 — Hollywood, California — Global Nonviolent Film Festival reveals the official poster for its 8th annual edition taking place 19 – 29 September, 2019.

Official Poster of the 2019 edition of Global Nonviolent Film Festival.

The poster was created by Daria Trifu, the Festival’s director, who also designed and executed the original artwork. “I created this poster as a visual means to show what our Festival stands for: peace and hope over war and violence. The contrast between light and dark was an essential component hence the choice of colour and black & white. The purity of the little girl signifies the hope for a better and brighter future.”

Global Nonviolent Film Festival continues to accept submissions of feature films, documentaries, shorts, docudramas, animation films and music videos. Until now, +20 films have already been selected from over 10 countries and they will be shown ‘in competition’ at the upcoming edition of the Festival.

The Festival accepts submissions via FilmFreeway, Withoutabox and Reelport.

The submission deadline is August 31.
