Starting on the International Day of Peace, Monday, Sept. 21, 2020, the 18th annual Global Peace Film Festival offers a robust program that includes thought-provoking films and art exhibits for people all over the world to enjoy from the comfort and safety of their homes, as well as a limited number of in-person Orlando events at which people can be safely distanced.
A selection of more than 20 feature films will be available for screening for just $5 each. These films highlight themes such as civil rights, environmental justice, ethics, human rights, immigration, LGBTQ+, music, social justice, voting, wellness and wildlife.
For an even greater value, a White Dove pass, which provides access to all films, is available for $100, a savings of $15. A 10-Ticket pass can be purchased for the price of eight ($40), and a five-ticket pass can be purchased for the price of four ($20).
Many of the films will be available worldwide throughout the festival, which runs through Oct. 4 while a few films are only available in the U.S. and North America, and two are available only in Florida. Check the individual film details in the film guide for more information on geographic restrictions and windows of availability.
A separate selection of short films will be available for free to viewers around the world at PeaceFilmFest.org/online-film-festival.
For those who feel like venturing out, BOMBSHELL: Masquerading Warfare, is an exhibit showing at CityArts, at 39 S. Magnolia Ave. in downtown Orlando through October 11. Avant-garde couture designer Ben Van Beusekom turns gas masks into works of art, and recognizes the importance they have played throughout history. CityArts is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11am to 6pm.
On Sept. 29, the films created as part of the MYgration Short Film Contest for FusionFest will be shown at Enzian Theater, where audience members will vote for their favorite. Tickets for this screening are $10 each.
