Our Mission

Connecting through film 


The Cinema for Peace foundation is an international non-profit organization with the goal to foster change through film . We  promote films and members of the film community who try to make a difference.

Since 9/11, 2001 the Cinema for Peace initiative has been aiming to influence through films the perception and resolution of global social, political and humanitarian challenges of our time - and especially to oppose war and terror.

We are also convinced that film plays a significant role in highlighting inequality, injustice and inhumanity, as well as offers hope and a vision for a better future.

Cinema for Peace aims to bring these humanitarian issues to public attention by partnering with the international human rights community as well as influential people in media, politics, business and society, to showcase cinematic works which emphasize the human condition and values.

In recent years, Cinema for Peace has supported a number of important causes with the help of artists like Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Julia Roberts, Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman and personalities such as The Dalai Lama, Muhammad Ali, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Mikhail Gorbachev and the former Honorary Patron Nelson Mandela.
