Dreams of Peace Film Festival: Africa | Call for Submissions

Submissions are still open for the 2022 Dreams of Peace Film Festival: Africa through November 29, 2021.

The Dreams of Peace Film Festival: Africa is an outlet for filmmakers of color to share their stories of pride, struggle, and culture.  Africa is a continent of many types of people, cultural differences, and its share of conflict, yet dreams of peace remain a vision for all. The Dreams of Peace Film Festival is a way for those dreams to be told and creativity to be expressed. Blackness is the thread that weaves the souls and stories of Africans and African Americans. This one-minute film festival celebrates the connection and dreams for peace and pride for people of the African diaspora.
