    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    Martin Luther King, Jr. posited that, "Peace is not only the absence of conflict, but also the presence of justice." Global Peace Film Festival draws together people from all walks of life to be inspired by compelling storytelling and for them to engage actively within their own lives and communities to make the world a better place than they found it: Watch films. Get involved. Change things.

    We seek stories that make us laugh, think, cry, sit taller in our seats and ask, "What can I do?" We curate experiences pairing films and post-screening events that educate and motivate our audiences. We work closely with local community groups and impact producers to create space for progress and creativity to flourish. GPFF is not a passive exhibition event, but a commitment to build relationships and resources aimed at increasing the presence of justice year round. It starts here.

    • Feature Film

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    One of the worlds leading genre film festivals focusing solely on Horror, Science Fiction, and Thillers. Each year the NYCHFF celebrates both the horror classics we grew up with and the new horror films & filmmakers who create them.
    Each year the NYCHFF fills the city with special screenings, parties, celebrity guests and free giveaways. The New York City Horror Film Festival is an event not to be missed. We have found that the independent film community nationwide, be it festivals, film websites, or even some of the most popular indie magazines, tend to shy away from these genre films, which is really a shame. Our philosophy is that the horror film is as important as any genre. In fact, many great Hollywood directors started out making low budget horror films.
    Some of the most influential filmmakers in this category include: Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfather), Oliver Stone (Platoon), Sam Raimi (Spiderman), Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings) and Wes Craven (Scream). We feel that the horror film may just be more important for the future of film making than any other genre out there!
