The 2014 Global Peace Film Festival will take place around several venues in Orlando and Winter Park September 16th through September 21, 2014 to utilize film and media to help promote world peace.
Global Peace Film Festival
The Global Peace Film Festival describes itself as a celebratory event with a mission to use creative media as a catalyst to inspire and educate people to initiate positive change in their local communities and worldwide. The festival has several showings of movies, panels, discussions, and other events to help motivate participants to get involved and help make changes in their community to help encourage peace. Some of the venues include Rollins College, Valencia College Winter Park, the Cobb Plaza Cinema Cafe in Downtown Orlando, the Alfond Inn, and the Winter Park Public Library.
One example of an event for the 2014 program is Lisa Tillman’s documentary called Weight Problem: Cultural Narratives of Fat and “Obesity” that will take place during the festival on September 20th at Rollins College at 2:30pm that interrogates our culture’s fear and hatred of fat; complicates the taken-for-granted relationship between weight and health; and challenges the rhetoric of the so-called “obesity epidemic,” which serves the $50-billion-per-year Diet Industrial Complex more than it improves public health that you can read more about here.
