IdealMe Workshops at the International Peace Festival

International Peace Festival & Film For Peace Festival. Celebrating the International Peace Day.

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in the 2nd Annual International Peace Festival. This online festival will run from Friday to Sunday, September 18-20, 2020. Toronto Waterfront Magazine (TWM) has taken a progressive role in tackling the issue of violence in our communities by creating the International Peace Festival (IPF) and “Film for Peace” (FFP) in 2018. This is an exciting opportunity for our city to address the escalation of violence in a creative way.

International Peace Festival (IPF) and Film for Peace (FFP) promotes peace through film, music, art exhibits, speakers, food and cultural exchange. This is an experiential, creative initiative that addresses the escalation of violence. The key objective of the festival is to raise awareness of the underlying contributing factors leading to violence, such as bullying, mental health, addictions, social isolation, poverty, rejections of minority groups, etc. with the hope of finding viable solutions to reduce violence.

On Sept 13, 2018, Toronto Waterfront Magazine announced the launch of IPF and FFP at the 3rd annual Waterfront Magazine TIFF Gala event at the Westin Harbour Castle hotel. Filmmakers were invited to submit a short film that is informative, inspiring, and entertaining.

1st Annual IPF and FFP was held on the International Peace Day, Sept 21, 2019, at Artscape. Over 1100 film from around the world were submitted last year and top 30 films, selected by our judges, were showcased. Guests enjoyed engaging exhibits, workshops, panel discussion and cultural food as well as great music, dance, and theatrical performances.
