Cinema for peace

Since after 9/11 the non-profit organization Cinema for Peace in Berlin has aimed to influence through movies and documentaries the perception and resolution of the global social, political and humanitarian challenges of our time.

In recent years Cinema for Peace has supported a number of important causes with the help of artists such as Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Sean Penn, George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio, Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and personalities 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:

“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.”

Films are as follows:

“Racing Extinction” :: Tues 21 Feb at Sandown Library

“Lampedusa in Winter” :: Weds 22 Feb at Quay Arts

“Tickling Giants” :: Thurs 23 Feb at Ventnor Arts Club

All showings are free of charge [donations welcome!] and start at 7.30pm - just turn up on the night.

There will be trailers from local film-makers, and hopefully a video introduction to each film by the Director.
