Festival start: 12 May 2019      Festival end: 16 May 2019

We believe in the moral and civic responsibility of the gifted filmmaker and artist, to use his or her talents in a manner that positively changes the world and obviates the need for violence. Our vision and philosophy at Peace Film Initiative (PFI) is a world where compassion wins over cold politics, peace wins over terror, and love and coexistence win over bigotry.

Hence at PFI our motto is, and we thrive to be the "Voice of the Voiceless".

Our first annual international peace film festival, PFIIFF is underway in the Kurdish regional capital, Erbil (May 12 - 16, 2019). The festival theme is Living Together in Peace, coinciding with The UN General-Assembly's declared International Day for Living Together in Peace (may 16).

Our focus are films about and/or by the marginelized and victims of war and terror, especially minorities, women, children, and the elderly.

Through IPFF we aim to serve as a bridge between the local film scene and the world film community; to introduce international filmmakers to the crisis particular to the region; to put a spotlight on human rights violations in various corners of the world; and most importantly, to promoter a culture of peace and coexistence.

We accept feature-length fiction, docudramas, and documentaries, short fiction films and documentaries, and short animations. Animation films must not exceed 15 minutes in length.

You film or documentary subject line must be in sync with our theme: Peace and coexistence.

Content that is submitted in a language other than English is required to have English subtitles included.

Projects producer before 2017 will not be accepted.

We retain the right to change the date or location of the festival, granted we keep it within Kurdistan region.

Films must be submitted as an online screener. We do NOT screen films in any other format.

Once an entry payment has been processed, we cannot provide a refund.
