Sabine Mondestin

Sabine Mondestin, a co-founder of Open World Toronto Film Festival, said, “When I heard about TWM initiative Film for Peace, it caught my attention. The issues of violence and the level of cruelties that we are witnessing among youth are overwhelming and striking. I was glad to know that this initiative addressing such issues has been formed in our city.” 


As a founder of OWTFF, I am delighted  and proud to support and to host Waterfront Magazine with “Film for Peace” Initiative at our 4th OWTFF Closing Gala party and I am looking forward to the next year. On the 5th editions of OWTFF we will showcase to the public the three best films of “Film for Peace” contest, added Sabine.
