PUMA Peace Films

  • Written on:

PUMA is proud to present the works of 7 international filmmakers as open content to be shown at the World Peace Festival 2011.

Curated by PUMA.Creative Chief Curator, Mark Coetzee, and produced by Shooting People, these films encompass a diverse range of styles including 35mm life action, experimental animation and fine art. These films were conceived as 30 to 90 second pieces to facilitate online and live screenings. They are works based on the idea that ‘peace starts with me’ and they were commissioned under an agreement with the artists that they can openly be downloaded and shown, without any fees, thus acting as ongoing tools for peace.

The filmmakers range from world-renowned award-winning artist to recent graduates; all were selected for their quality and the scope of their work along with their sensitivity in interpreting peace as a fundamentally personal initiative.
