I am very pleased to announce that Graceland Girls has been accepted into the 2013 Peace on Earth Film Festival, March 7 – 10 in Chicago!
Peace On Earth Film Festival (POEFF) is a not-for-profit festival established to celebrate and encourage the work of independent filmmakers from around the world on the themes of peace, nonviolence, social justice and eco-balance. POEFF aims to contribute to a culture of peace through international cinema, dialogue and programming highlighting individuals on the vanguard of peace activism and social change. POEFF endeavors to enlighten and empower individuals, families, and communities to step out of the ignorance of conflict, violence and divisiveness, into the light of communication, consideration, tolerance and understanding.
The 5th annual POEFF is hosted by the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events and taking place at the historic Chicago Cultural Center‘s Claudia Cassidy Theater (78 E. Washington St., Chicago, IL 60602), in the heart of Chicago’s world-renowned theater district.
The event features panel discussions with attending filmmakers and activists in the various modalities of peace, as well as Q & A sessions with filmmakers themselves. Admission is free and open to the public.
