October 20, 2021 — Hollywood, California — The 11th edition of the Global Nonviolent Film Festival will take place from September 29 to October 9, 2022.
Global Nonviolent Film Festival is the most important and renown nonviolent film festival in the world. It takes place annually on it’s streaming channel at: globalnonviolentfilmfestival.com
Submissions are now open on FilmFreeway. 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 films that are selected to participate at the Festival, are guaranteed a distribution contract proposal from globalcinema.online – a unique pay-per-view streaming channel for films that do not contain gratuitous violence. The channel is available worldwide.
Filmmakers from every corner of the globe are invited to submit their films, documentaries, docudramas, 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 the 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.
Here is what the filmmakers had to say about their experience at the Festival in 2021:
The best organized festival ever. The communication is perfect and human. The video of the awards ceremony is especially big and was a nice surprise. I wish you all the same enthusiasm to continue the festival for the pleasure of every filmmaker! My angel protect your health, your momentum in your lives, joy and happiness. All the best! – Zsolt Pozsgai, director of “Darking Way” from Hungary
Daria Trifu and Bruno Pischiutta are the wisest festival directors! They know that Cinema is not a boxing match. Cinema is an exchange of ideas. They are lucky people because Global Nonviolent Film Festival succeeded to show so many exceptional movies. Thank you, Daria and Bruno! – Kostadin Bonev, director of “Away From the Shore” from Bulgaria
Daria and Bruno present everything with excellence and professionalism to bring the best artistic works to be seen worldwide. I was honored to participate in the 2021 Global Nonviolent Film Festival and win the award for Best Music Video for “Color Blind”. From entry to communications, website features, future distribution as well as promotion in DARIA! magazine, the resources provided by this festival are a win for everyone who participates! Thank you for recognizing my work! – Annemarie Picerno, director of “Color Blind” from the USA
The hospitality and communication have been excellent. Bruno and Daria put a lot of work into presenting the films in DARIA! magazine, on Facebook, in the daily video presentations, and in the Awards Show. When your film has been selected to be part of the festival, you also become part of a community. Thank you for selecting my short film “Waves” (Bølgeblikk), and to the jury for rewarding it for Best Director and Best Actress. – Camilla Roman, director of “Waves” from Norway
Delighted to have participated in a very worthy festival. We all need less violence and craziness in our lives. Thank you for creating a forum for good stories sans guns, explosions, and torture! – Kate Davis, director of “Cowgirls and Indians” from the USA
Great thanks for this amazing festival. The daily coverage, the accompanying magazine, the appreciation of the filmmakers and the very personal and good communication characterize this festival in particular. What a wonderful event! You have shown so much appreciation to all filmmakers and made their work visible. Thank you very much! – Tilo Wondollek, director of “Egg-volution” from Germany
The best nonviolent film festivals in the world where you can watch remarkable independent cinema that share a sensibility. The program does not contain gratuitous violence that you see from the majority of films from the mega corporate world of Film. You won’t see King Kong versus Godzilla here. You see movies about the human condition. It is an honor to have had two of my documentaries selected from the United States and to be included among all the great films you have selected from around the world. Much success to you and all the filmmakers taking part in this great nonviolent and independent film festival. Cheers to all. Thank you for your festival and best wishes! – Roger Paradiso, director of “Searching for Camelot: The Quest” and “The Lost Village” from the USA
