A positive message from our friends at AFI Peace Initiative

partnership%20peace.jpg

I hope you are well and staying “Safe, Healthy, and Alert.” This 2020 has been a year where our organization is needed more than ever. We have achieved beyond expectations in  "2020 Year of COVID-19," mainly due to Strategic Partnerships, barters, and many of our initiatives we implemented before the pandemic. During 2020 we were able to execute the following: 

 

* Karl Bardosh Humanitarian Cellphone Awards (During Cannes Film Festival Virtual) the Oscars sent warm regards to Princess Angelique Monet and Karl Bardosh and stated they see a bright future for Cellphone Cinema 

 

 

* Angelique Monet launched a series of “Soft launches” for  www.amonetv.com (The Tesla of Modern Day Cinema) Phase 4 Testing Phase Begins December 1, 2020. AM ONE TV is the first dedicated platform for smartphone cinema (not limited to). The platform will provide EDUCATION, FESTIVAL, and The Netflix of Smartphone Cinema. OTT Platforms are the largest industry in entertainment 

 

* Completion of our AFI World Peace Initiative short documentary film shot by award winning filmmakers and Explorers Jeremy Lazelle and Kristin Gates. The final version will be screened during our film festival starting December 17th. PLEASE WATCH to learn more of our organization. Also there are opportunities for “Special Thank You,” at the end. 

 

* Angelique Monet Founded "AM ONE Youth Smart Phone Film Festival," Smartphone Film Workshops, and Awards Co-Founder Prof. Karl Bardosh with UNESCO Center for Peace under the Patronage of His Excellency Guy Djoken 

AM ONE YOUTH SMART SMARTPHONE FILM FESTIVAL AWARDS

 

 

 

 

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE EVENT: 

* Maria Bot the 1st Teaching Android along with William Barry Ph.D  became the 1st Goodwill Ambassadors for New Generation In Action's World Peace and Tolerance Institute. Additional highlights included the first time ever an android introduced diplomacy at an event, and met a ventriloquist figure (Maria met Angelique Monet's ventriloquist puppet "Milk the Cow). 10 Year old UK Youngest "DJ Zel"  on the radio performed (Angelique Monet is mentoring DJ Zel) 

 

* The AM ONE Youth Smartphone Film Festival" will also have a short documentary produced around the theme "We are One.” The Youth Film will screen at our programs during Festival de Cannes 2021 and then submit for major awards before being distributed world-wide and on AM  ONE TV. (There are opportunities to obtain a FILM CREDIT) 

 

* Hollywood veterans agreed that Smartphone Cinema is the future after attending our events, and offered support. 

 

PARTNERSHIPS 

* Partnerships with The Ring of Peace (UK) supported by HM The Queen Government , UNESCO Center for Peace, Asian Academy of Film and TV/Noida Studios (India), DECIDIE (Healthcare in Nigeria ECOSOC UN Status ), Youth Programs, AAFT University (India), UNESCO Center for Global Education, African Women Health Project, 

 

ADDITIONAL HIGHLIGHTS 

In addition Angelique Monet has mentored youth (under 21) and young adults during COVID-19, assisted with global health campaigns, mental health campaigns, conservation, artificial intelligence, and space education for youth. She has led campaigns helping with Social Justice and Diversity, while ushering in a new film industry of SMARTPHONE CINEMA (COVID PROOF FILMMAKER AND CINEMA FOR THE POOR). More announcements will be made at the “World Peace & Tolerance Summit,” scheduled for December 17-21 (virtually). In addition, Monet has spoken with key figures to help with Diversity and Inclusion Great Britain and Commonwealth Territories. Monet has been influential in helping the arts and entertainment sectors in Great Britain, diversity and religious intolerance. 

 

It is also beautiful to note a few awards Monet has received since March 2020 to date: Certificate of Recognition as the Founder of the 1st Film Festival for UNESCO Center for Peace, Dr. Sarojini Naidu "The Nightingale of India" award where Monet was honored for her sincere contributions to the country of India (featured in over 100 news outlets) Honorary Member of World Peace Development Research Foundation (Division of Asian Society of Film & Television), World Peace Honoree during International Day of Peace (UNESCO Center of Peace), Women Make Change (UK at the Arab Chamber of Commerce). Monet also serves as World Peace Ambassador for many organizations that are working for Peace Diplomacy. She is also listed on Alamy News Service as the ONLY Peace Advocate Princess, World Peace Princess and Peace Princess with reigning Monarchies. This marks a huge achievement seeing Monet is not a paid royal, and humbly works for the greater good.
