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:
