Experience this year's essential stories of bravery, resilience, peace, and reconciliation, and all for free. The annual Film for Peace and International Peace Festival returns to Toronto this September.
FFP screens a variety of independent short films and showcases filmmakers whose work may fall outside of the mainstream festival market. We also assist emerging artists grow in their careers by offering feedback on the projects they have submitted to FFP. As a grassroots festival, we also invite the community into the world of filmmaking through several events.
FFP video and short film creators are asked to focus on their vision in expressing issues of conflict and resolution, including reconciliation processes. Film for Peace is here to support the creative searches of young filmmakers, in addressing such issues as drug abuse, mental health, bullying, social isolation, racism, poverty, especially with a focus on the problems encountered by youth.
Entrants are judged on their ability to effectively communicate, through the medium of film, potential solutions to achieving sustainable peace as a community. Thirty films, over eleven categories, will be selected to be showcased at the FFP festival on September 21-25, 2022.
