Bridge of Peace film festival is moving forward

An independent film festival BRIDGE OF PEACE is seeking funding to move to a dedicated online platform.
Thoughts about peace, creativity, and unity lead us to reflect on how the story of our film festival "Bridge of Peace" began. Like an idea born at a crossroads of fate, it evolved into a powerful movement that we proudly present to the world today.
Linking the Military Bridge and Culture:
It all started with an encounter with a military engineer specialized in constructing pontoon bridges for water crossings. The peaceful era back then prompted our conversation about how the military can build not only physical bridges, but bridges between cultures. After all, bridges are always needed, not just for physical passage, but for bringing people with different views and ideas together.
Towards a Film Festival Platform:
Since then, we have successfully hosted three inspiring "Bridge of Peace" film festivals. Our project has become a symbol of unity in diversity, but the time has come to take the next crucial step. We aim to transition our festival to a professional film festival platform. This move will not only enhance the quality of our organization but also unlock new opportunities for participants and viewers.
Significance of the Professional Platform:
Creating the "Bridge of Peace" on a professional platform is the key to its long-term success. This will enable us to attract sponsors and advertisers who share our values and are willing to support the cultural movement. Additionally, we can assist filmmakers in distributing their films, granting them the chance to share their creativity with a global audience.
Fundraising as an Investment in the Future:
I urge you to remember that your involvement is not just financial support; it's an investment in the development of culture and the arts. Together, we can build cultural bridges that connect all of us. Your donation will make it possible to elevate the "Bridge of Peace" to a new level and ensure its growth and advancement.
Just as at the beginning of our journey, we believe that each one of us can be an architect of change. By supporting our fundraising project, you become part of our mission to expand the horizons of culture and pave the way to mutual understanding through art.
Thank you for your support and belief in our dream of the "Bridge of Peace". Together, we can shape a cultural future that many aspire to.

The Bridge of Peace festival needs a professional online streaming platform for the festival's films.
Create an online platform for the BRIDGE OF PEACE Film Festival from which we will broadcast a better picture of the films of the festival, from which filmmakers could speak directly to an international audience about the issues social issues and threats to peaceful life on the planet.
Twice a year we show viewers a unique collection of films that reveal social issues, the truth about military conflicts and their consequences. We include films on ecology, climate change, the cultures of the peoples of the world. Recently, we have also been concerned about the unsatisfactory state of education. That's why we created a new category of competition, New Generation.
Based on the results of the work of the jury and the viewers, the creators of the best films receive awards from the Golden Dove festival.
More than 3,000 viewers from 54 countries around the world watch the films of the festival for free. Moving the Bridge of Peace Film Festival to an online platform will simplify access to the festival and increase our audience.

Cinema is the most accessible art that can:
- convey to millions of viewers the pressing problems of society and through vivid artistic images show that war is a tragedy, blood and death, and not a solution to problems,
- to fill the information void left by traditional media, to bring new knowledge through the films of the festival, to open discussions and information online, thus enabling the discovery of truth and creating neutrality,
- raise awareness of the consequences of wars, global migrations, in particular due to climate change, water shortages and environmental pollution in general,
- build cultural bridges around the world, which bring cinema to millions of viewers.
What will the funds raised be used for?
900 euros - annual reception of the festival on the platform,
800 euros - film distribution costs,
1200 euros (750 euros + taxes) - editor's salary for the preparation of content for the festival's streaming program, which will take place in December 2023.

You can help the Bridge of Peace Film Festival become a global platform to bring people of goodwill together and build Bridges of Peace around the world.
