Cinema for Peace is an international non-profit organization with the goal to encourage greater awareness of global social, political and humanitarian challenges of our time.
Since 9/11 2001 the Cinema for Peace Initiative has been influencing the perception and resolution of global social, political and humanitarian challenges of our time through film and cinematic arts. Over the years, we have accomplished many objectives and achieved many feats which would not have been possible without also your generous support.
Cinema for Peace has supported a number of important causes with the help of artists such as Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Sean Penn, Leonardo DiCaprio, George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and dignitaries such as The Dalai Lama, Muhammad Ali, Bill and Hillary Clinton, President Mikhail Gorbachev and the former Honorary Patron Nelson Mandela.
Ban Ki-moon, Secretary General of the United Nations, famously said about the initiative:” Let me applaud Cinema for Peace. Every time you and our friends from the creative community reach out to help people to learn about human rights and justice, you help the United Nations to keep the peace.”
