On behalf of the Review Committee for the Peace On Earth Film Festival, we extend our congratulations to the filmmakers whose films have been chosen as a 2016 Official Selection.
Our selections narrowed to 26 entries representing 11 different countries from a field of 101 submissions; this was an arduous task; given so many worthy, thought provoking, and illuminating films.
One of the purposes of this festival is to bring to light films that are often challenged to find exhibition. It takes a leap of faith to create films in the genre of peace; and all of the submissions reflected the filmmakers’ own advocacy and dedication to the cause.
We thank all of the submitting filmmakers. Our deepest regard for you, your crew, pre and post-production team, everyone involved in the creation of your film: we hold you all in high esteem. Most importantly, the 2016 Peace on Earth Film Festival Review Committee thanks you for your steadfast dedication to peace, nonviolence, social justice, and an eco-balanced world, through the art of filmmaking.
