IN CELEBRATION OF 10 YEARS OF INSPIRATIONAL SCREENINGS AND POST-SCREENING DISCUSSIONS, THE IWT TEAM WILL BE HOSTING A SERIES OF 10 INTIMATE MONTHLY SCREENINGS OF SOME OF THE BEST FILMS OVER THE YEARS IN A COUNTDOWN TO THE 10TH I WILL TELL FESTIVAL IN AUG-SEP 2016!
COME AND CELEBRATE SOLDIERS OF PEACE WITH US. #IWILL10
Soldiers of Peace, narrated by Hollywood actor and United Nations Messenger for Peace Michael Douglas gives us an uplifting look at the current geopolitical state of the world. Contrary to popular belief, there are actually less armed conflicts in the world today and less people dying of violent deaths than ever before.
When this film was first screened almost 8 years ago, the world was changing fast and humankind was being confronted with many challenges. Through numerous and beautiful examples, the film illustrates the many ways in which people and communities are making a positive change, today, featuring Sir Richard Branson, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Sir Bob Geldof, Hans Blix and the Dalai Lama, incorporating stories from 19 countries and featuring the 'Soldiers of Peace' in Colombia, Ireland, England, Liberia, Nigeria, USA, and Kenya.
In a world bombarded by negative imagery and messages, the film showcases the alternatives to conflict, revealing countless inspiring examples to prove that peace can be achieved through greater equality, emancipation, tolerance and understanding.
Join us as we celebrate the many unsung heroes who, either individually or in co-operation with others, are striving for peace and stay for the post-screening discussion where we explore whether things have changed.
When & Where
I Will Tell International Film Festival
I Will Tell is an innovative international film festival run for 11 nights each year in London. The festival focusses on edifying lives, promoting dignity and celebrating diversity by focussing on the stories of the Black community and other under-represented people groups around the world. We operate according to 3 C's: Celebrating intentionally, Critiquing wisely and Connecting authentically. We screen over 30 films of a wide range of genres from around the world. The films touch on issues relating to business, media, arts & entertainment, family, government, education and religion as well as the less tangible themes of love, joy, peace and unity. 2016 will be our 10th year and we are humbled and awed by all that has been achieved through God, by our amazing filmmakers, volunteers and loyal festival goers (as well as those of you who just stumbled across the awesomeness that is I Will Tell). This year we are taking time out just to celebrate. Hope you will join us!
