Vacations are a time of reflection as well as relaxation. During your next Orlando vacation, find meaning and peace in your life by escaping reality through film.
Watching films is typically a passive action, but not at this film festival. The Global Peace Film Festival, now in its 17th year, uses the influential power of cinema to promote peace on earth. The Global Peace Film Festival goes beyond the usual anti-war definition of peace and explores a more personal meaning of peace on a smaller scale, in individuals and communities around the world. This opens up the potential film topics to issues like social inequality, LGBTQ+ issues, climate change, and many more important subjects that all promote peace.
Now Showing at This Year’s Festival
The 2019 Global Peace Film Festival runs September 16 through September 22 at theaters around Orlando and Winter Park. The film screenings are organized by length (feature/short, 40-120 minutes and <40 minutes respectively) and type (narratives/documentaries/animated). A special Young Filmmakers section exists for authors under 21 years old. At the same time as the live festival, there is a companion festival hosted online and aimed at audiences outside of the Orlando area.
