Peace Day Philly Features Graceland Girls for Global Awareness

Peace Day Philly, a regional celebration of the International Day of Peace, September 21, has invited Graceland Girls to screen as part of their Global Awareness Films Series, “Films at the Fish.”

This worldwide day of ceasefire and non violence can have a significant positive impact in the Philadelphia region through the active involvement of individuals, groups, organizations and neighborhoods.


SEPTEMBER 6 – OCTOBER 4, 2013: Every Wednesday – Saturday at 8 p.m. & Sundays at 3 p.m., “FILMS AT THE FISH,” the Walking Fish Theatre, 2509 Frankford Avenue, Philadelphia, PA.  For more information, CLICK HERE.

The Walking Fish Theatre will screen a group of independent films related to global issues as part of their “Films at the Fish” program and in partnership with Peace Day Philly. We are thankful to the generosity of the filmmakers who are making these films related to global issues available for the International Day of Peace/Peace Day, and we also thank Chicago’s Peace On Earth Film Festival (POEFF) for drawing our attention to the shorter films.
