The 20th annual Global Peace Film Festival runs from September 20 - 25 with screenings in the Winter Park Library and at Rollins College. The GPFF uses films as a catalyst to inspire and educate people to initiate positive change in their local communities and worldwide. As former LWVOC President Charley Williams has said, “The GPFF is like a week of Hot Topics.”
Highlight include “American River” about the Passaic River in New Jersey; “The Big Payback” about the tax-funded reparations bill in Evanston, IL; “My So-Called Selfish Life” about women’s bodily autonomy; and “Anonymous Sister” about the ravages of opioid addiction.
