MISSION & OBJECTIVE

The 10th Annual Peace On Earth Film Festival (POEFF) celebrates and supports independent filmmakers and their work from around the world on the themes of peace, nonviolence, social justice, ecology and sustainability: films within the various modalities of peace genre.

POEFF aims to contribute to a culture of peace through international cinema, dialogue and programming highlighting individuals on the vanguard of peace activism and social change.

Presenting a program of multi-faceted films, POEFF focuses on reshaping attitudes, encouraging and highlighting nonviolent practices, and opening minds to the possibility of communication, consideration, tolerance and understanding.

The festival features Filmmakers’ Panel and Peacemakers’ Panel discussions, Opening Night festivities and a Closing Night Awards Ceremony where exhibiting filmmakers are honored, and category winners receive accolades and cash prizes.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

The 2018 Tenth Annual Peace On Earth Film Festival is the primary project of Transcendence Global Media, NFP [501 (c)3] and has been established to grow and nurture awareness of the possibilities within all of us to contribute to peace in our own lives as well as the lives of everyone on the planet.

The POEFF will bring filmmakers of all backgrounds and levels of experience together in a message and promotion of peace and nonviolence for all the world. POEFF invites filmmaker's challenging perspectives on issues such as war, conflict (in all its various forms), world politics, poverty, environment, economics, and more, while presenting an alternative of peace and nonviolence from all cultural perspectives.
