Cinema for Peace Screening in Srebrencia on the occasion of the 20th Memorial Day of the Genocide in Srebrenica.

Since after 9/11 the non-profit organization Cinema for Peace has been aiming to influence through films the perception and resolution of global social, political and humanitarian challenges of our time. In recent years, Cinema for Peace has supported a number of important causes with help of artists like Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and personalities such as the Dalai Lama, Muhammad Ali, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Mikhail Gorbachev and the former Honorary Patron Nelson Mandela.

It is our belief that films have the incredible power to uplift and bring hope to viewers, as well as effectively deliver a vision for a better future. Film also plays a significant role in highlighting inequality, injustice and inhumanity. For these reasons, the Cinema for Peace Foundation endeavors to further peace and understanding worldwide through the support of cinematographic works. Through the involvement in the production and distribution of films about violence, ecocide, war, poverty, the prevention of diseases (e.g. AIDS) and violations of human rights, the Cinema for Peace Foundation works to raise awareness about humanitarian issues worldwide. Such films are supported and made accessible through the foundation as widely as possible, either directly by Cinema for Peace, or by supporting third parties in doing so.


“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 UN to keep the peace.” - Ban Ki-moon
