    The mission of the New York Peace Film Festival (NYPFF) is to present films from around the world that advance global peace.  We define ‘global peace’ very broadly.  We emphasize the advantages of peaceful solutions to international conflicts, and show the horrors and costs of war.  But we also screen films that deal constructively and hopefully with the root causes of war: the better management of the resources of the earth and the sharing of those natural resources, the peaceful resolution of local and regional conflicts, and the humility and understanding needed when interacting with a different cultural tradition.  Also of deep interest is the proliferation and consequences of nuclear arms and energy. 

    Because the quest for peace is a year-round effort, the NYPFF also produces events throughout the year.  In the past we have sponsored a photo exhibit, produced readings of plays, and poetry readings.  We continually look for opportunities to promote peace.
