The Path 2 Peace Film Festival would like to extend an invitation to filmmakers, organizations, foundations, and other entities who feel their work will fit in with the purpose and objectives of this project.

Path 2 Peace Film Festival

At the Institute for Religion, Culture and Peace (IRCP) we are interested in peace building. The avenues in which peace builders seek conflict resolution are varied and we do not want to limit creativity.

In general, the themes which the project will look at include (but are not limited to):

  • Faith
  • Conflict
  • Justice
  • Peace

As this project intends to act as a venue to thematically bridge film with non-governmental, civil-society, media, and/or human rights organizations working on social justice issues, if your work is in conjunction with (or if you represent) an organization focused on peacebuilding, we encourage your submissions. If your work is not affiliated with an organization, we will still gladly accept submissions if the film’s thematic value fits with the Path 2 Peace Film Festival objectives.

There will be a preliminary jury to select films that will be passed onto an official jury who will select one winner in each category (Short films and Feature films) of which there will be awards, celebrations and accommodations given to the winners.

Selected open call films will be scheduled in accordance with time formatting for the 3 day event, highlighting the winners of the festival. Open call selection and scheduling will be based on winners, themes, and will be announced after the selection process is complete.

The organizing committee reserves the right to rule on cases not foreseen by these regulations. Participation in Path 2 Peace Film Festival implies acceptance of the rules and regulations by producers and agents.

  2. In an effort to be inclusive of Thai attendees, films with Thai sub-titles will be appreciated (but is not required)

    • Short films: 15min and under

  6. Must encompass the overarching theme of the project as stated above

Scheduling

If your film has been selected and included in the program schedule, it cannot be withdrawn. Film schedules will be determined by the organizing committee and could be screened up to two times during the program. The date, time, and location of film screenings will be at the discretion of the organizing committee and will be announced closer to the festival dates.
All submissions must arrive by 25 October 2016.
