The Peace on Earth Film Festival (POEFF) announces the winners of this years film awards

logo1.png

 The Peace on Earth Film Festival (POEFF) announces the winners of this years film awards. Every film that played at the 8th Festival (March 3-6th) is eligible to win an award.  The festival directors and review committee select entries into the festival and the award winners.

POEFF celebrates and supports independent filmmakers and their work from around the world on the themes of peace, nonviolence, social justice and eco-balance. POEFF aims to contribute to a culture of peace through international cinema, dialogue and programming highlighting individuals on the vanguard of peace activism and social change.

 

EXPOSE AWARDS:

A special category that the festival directors created 5 years ago to recognize short and feature documentaries that expose a subject that has received little or no media or public attention, but that shares a potent message, and a clear demonstration that change is needed and is possible.

Expose Award for Short Documentary:

HOLODOMOR: VOICES OF SURVIVORS (UKRAINIAN FAMINE / GENOCIDE)

Country: Ukraine, Canada

Director: Ariadna Ochrymovych

Synopsis: “Holodomor: Voices of Survivors” tells the story of a genocide engineered by Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin in 1932-1933 to suppress Ukrainian nationhood. By confiscating all livestock, grain and basic foodstuffs, Stalin ensured the starvation of the countryside. The world turned a blind eye as Soviet authorities exported Ukraine's wheat to the West while millions perished.

The Expose Award for Feature Documentary:

SINCE: THE BOMBING OF PAN AM FLIGHT 103

Country: UK

Director: Phil Furey

Synopsis: Terrorism is one of biggest problems facing humanity today, but the families of the 270 victims of Pan Am Flight 103 have lived with it for decades. From the early days when an unprepared U.S. government left the relatives to fend for themselves; however, these first victims of terrorism proved that ordinary people can accomplish extraordinary feats.

 

BEST OF THE FEST AWARDS:

 

Student Film:

DAILY BREAD

Country: USA

Director: Betsy Tsai

Synopsis: In the middle of night, Omer and Yoni, two Israeli Jewish brothers, encounter Khalid, a Palestinian boy from the West Bank. A fight ensues, resulting in a broken leg. The boys are uncertain what to do. The varied histories, sentiments, divisions, and desperation of both families surface through the boys' memories, and ultimately in their discordant approaches to the situation at hand.

Short Documentary:

A NEW COLOR: THE ART OF BEING EDYTHE BOONE

Country: USA

Director: Marlene "Mo" Morris

Synopsis: Long before “black lives matter” became a rallying cry, Edythe Boone embodied that truth as an artist, an educator, and a great-grandmother. When a deeply personal tragedy ignites a national outcry, everything that Edy has worked for comes into question. “A New Color” illuminates the social issues of our time and shows how the work of one woman reverberates throughout a community to inspire a powerful chorus

 

Best Animation

OUR GIRL

Country: UK

Director: Ruth Beni

Synopsis: “Our Girl” is aimed at young women who are in danger of being forced to marry someone against their will.

 

Best Feature Narrative

HAPPY THOSE WHO CRY

Country: Paraguay

Director: Marcello Torcida

Synopsis: Juan is a boy from a wealthy family who doesn't seem to find his path in life. Juan's rebellion does not fare well. A group of local kids find an injured Juan; and a series of confrontation evolve, bringing together Father Mario, a corrupt police force and hardened drug dealers. Through it all "Happy Those Who Cry" is a story full of hope and redemption.

 Best Short Narrative:

AULLIDO (HOWL)

Country: Guatemala

Director: M.D. Neely

Synopsis: A violent secret in Guatemala City is affecting families in every social class and neighborhood. Everyone knows yet are silent.

 Feature Documentary:

INDIA’S DAUGHTER

Country: India

Director: Leslee Udwin

Synopsis: The remarkable and inspiring short life of Jyoti Singh, “India’s Daughter” is a study into the mindset of the men who committed her gang-rape and murder in Delhi in December 2012 and the patriarchal society and culture which foment such actions. The film is optimistic, however, as the case has become a catalyst for change. Hindi with subtitles.
