Since 2003, the Global Peace Film Festival (GPFF) has used powerful moving images (film) to further the cause of peace on earth. Their mission in part indicates that “the GPFF envisioned ‘peace’ not as the absence of conflict but as a framework for channeling, processing and resolving conflict through respectful and non-violent means”. This year’s festival program reflects “Life in Motion” and features a portrait of Sarah Kamsin, the daughter of Sudanese immigrants. Visit www.peacefilmfest.org for more about Sarah’s portrait, complete festival details including movie listings and venues and community partners. The beautiful Rollins College campus and various Winter Park land and streetscapes are bonuses to event attendees.
