Global Nonviolent Film Festival (previously known as Brasov International Film Festival & Market) is the most important and renown nonviolent film festival in the world.

The Festival, founded by film director Bruno Pischiutta and producer Daria Trifu in 2012, showcases nonviolent films and demonstrates how those movies are not only capable of great international success, but are also in high demand by the public.

Mission Statement
We want that the rights of women and children are respected. We want to fight intellectual pollution, stupidity, racism and discrimination. We want to show that nonviolent films can be commercially viable and can contribute to achieving a better world. We want to win the fight against ignorance and bigotry. We want to use the art of film as a weapon in order to improve the viewers’ lifestyle.

Our CAUSE is driven by high ideals and it is more important than any one of us.

It is a new world; it is time for a new morality! It is time to put the important things first. We are working for our CAUSE through the medium of film because we are filmmakers. Film is our way of expressing ourselves and we take into consideration the fact that our films will live on after us: they will become our legacy.

Global Nonviolent Film Festival is privately owned and organized by Global Film Studio Inc., a Canadian company federally incorporated.
