Exclusive Member Offer! Free Screening Kits: Women, War & Peace

Posted on

The IFUW offers free screening kits on priorities in peacekeeping focused on women. I think it would be wonderful if we could use it our Bucharest Conference 4-7 September! Let me know what you think! Or maybe you would like to use it in your own country (the film is in English) than apply to cs@ifuw.org. Deadline is 16 May 2014.

Peace is Loud have developed an acclaimed documentary series entitled, Women, War & Peace. IFUW has teamed up with Peace is Loud to offer this series to IFUW national federations and associations (NFAs) to host screening events, and to launch a joint statement: Priorities in Peacekeeping: Women, War & Peace.

Founded by activist, filmmaker and philanthropist Abigail Disney, Peace is Loud inspires action through media and live events that spotlight women leaders on the frontline of peacebuilding worldwide. Women, War & Peace is a five-part documentary series featuring women’s voices from the frontlines of peacebuilding in Liberia, Bosnia, Afghanistan and Colombia. The series includes the film Pray the Devil Back to Hell and is co-created by filmmakers Abigail Disney, Pamela Hogan and Gini Reticker. Watch the trailer.

The films are available in a screening kit that comes with region-free DVDs and a discussion guide featuring interviews with women leaders, including Nobel Laureate Leymah Gbowee, on organizing for peace. Plus each screening kit has four language options: Arabic, English, French and Spanish. Already, over 180 organizations in 66 countries are screening the films to foster education, discussion and advocacy. We hope you will join this effort!

IFUW has fifteen free screening kits to give away to NFAs, if you would like to receive a kit please email details on your screening, including who you will invite, where you will host it, and your objectives for the screening, in no more than 200 words. Email your screening details to cs by 16 May 2014.
