About the 2010 Global Peace Film Festival 

The Global Peace Film Festival was established to utilize the power of the motion picture to further the goal of peace on earth. With a mission to expand the definition of peace beyond anti-war, ideology, activism or specific causes, the Global Peace Film Festival films and events suggest a more personal message as reflected in the daily lives of individuals and communities the world over.

The GPFF presents films from around the world and global discussions that highlight the power of this extraordinary medium as it relates to new peace issues. See films from around the world, attend educational panels, and hear from local activists about their work. Many filmmakers will be on hand to answer questions after the screening of their films.

The GPFF is also host to four discussion panels held throughout the week.

Global Peace Film Festival 2008

The GPFF is much more than a film festival. The academic experience linked to the Festival extends the goals of Rollins' core mission, using film as a medium to promote reflection on global citizenry and responsible leadership. From classes with academic curriculum based around the Festival to public screenings of student-produced films, the College's participation in this Festival adds a new element to the pedagogical process.

The Day After Peace Kicks Off the 2009 Global Peace Film Festival
2010 Students Day After GPFF

Members of the Class of 2010,
Eric Short, Nate Fulton, Sydney Sullivan,
Liza Daigh, Nic Birdsall, enjoyed
The Day After Peace viewing.

  Tuesday, September 22, marked the commencement of the 2009 Global Peace Film Festival. 

The Day After Peace, a film by Jeremy Gilley, was screened on Rollins’ Mills Lawn, with students and Winter Park community members alike in attendance.  Before the film, students performed live music to entertain the crowd, and free BBQ and Fuze beverage samples were provided.  A nervous buzz about the unpredictable Florida weather circulated, but the clouds held out, setting up a perfect atmosphere for viewing this emotional film. 

The Day After Peace showing was a great way to start out the festival, and encouraged the community to check out films for the rest of the week.

Global Peace Film Festival Executive Director Nina Streich cites creating a dialogue about peace as one of the fundamental objectives of the Global Peace Film Festival. One of the many ways in which that dialogue is created during the festival is through panel discussions. Throug these discussions, Rollins students and other audience members have the unique opportunity to not only view the films, but also to voice their opinions and contribute to the festival.
