In 2003, Iraq was invaded, occupied, brutalized and until today more than 1.5 million people have been killed as a consequence. In the same year millions of people around the world joined the struggle against this criminal and bloody war. MAWO’s first Film Festival for Peace was held in this year. A decade since the festival began, MAWO has screened hundreds of films documenting wars, occupations and the struggle of oppressed people for self-determination. By organizing the Film Festival for Peace, MAWO has joined this fight for a better world! Since the first MAWO Film Festival for Peace in December 2003, thousands of people have attended this one of a kind and free festival complete with films, special guest speakers, art exhibits and teach-ins.

At this years festival MAWO is honored to host renowned documentary filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin. Alanis is from the Abenaki Indigenous Nation and currently lives in Quebec. She has made over 30 documentaries on the struggle of Indigenous people in Canada, including “Kanesatake” and most recently “The People of Attawapiskat River” which will be screened at the festival. She has directed documentaries for the National Film Board (NFB) for over 40 years, is a Member of the Board for the Public Broadcasting System (PBS) and has received countless awards for her filmmaking and her many achievements.

This year’s film festival, with a central focus on the world-wide struggle for peace, should not to be missed!
