Here’s why filmmakers need to enter the Global Nonviolent Film Festival

Annually it is streamed online over at it’s TV Channel on Vimeo. The world famous festival was established in 2012.
All the films presented are nonviolent: the festival does not present 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 festival was founded by film director Bruno Pischiutta and producer Daria Trifu in 2012, showcases nonviolent films and demonstrates how those movies are not only capable of great international success, but are also in high demand by the public.
In 2016, the two founders made film and internet history by bringing the Festival on-line exclusively and allowing, for the first time, the world viewers to enjoy all the selected films from the comfort of their homes on the Festival’s TV Channel on Vimeo.
Over the years, some of the filmmakers awarded here include: Nicole Kidman, Woody Allen, Richard Gere, Keira Knightley, Robert Redford, Sarah Jessica Parker, Woody Harrelson and Cameron Diaz among many others.
Since 2012, over 400 films have been screened and 150 have received illustrious awards.
