- A strange thing happened to the reviewers assigned to preview films from the Global Peace Film Festival: No matter the up-and-down production values, the content hit its target, soliciting an overwhelming sense of compassion from the seen-it-all writers – and it came as a big surprise. One by one, reports came back with comments like, “I never even knew about this, but it really got to me.” A bunch of liberal softies? Nah, just humans feeling connected to other humans in distress. – Lindy T. Shepherd, Orlando Weekly

About Global Peace Film Festival
The Global Peace Film Festival celebrates and furthers messages of peace and environmentalism with 40 films screened at venues across Orlando. Documentaries, narrative full lengths, and short films from around the globe spare cinephiles from direct sunlight while filmmakers, special guests, and local activists educate attendees about the power of the medium in special panel discussions. The peace it champions as a whole goes beyond anti-war, often touching on a more personal well-being that's reflected in the lives of individuals and communities.
