Natural Awakenings Central Florida / Orlando

Global Peace Film Festival Returns!

Celebrating their 19th year in Central Florida, this year films will be presented in person from Sept 21 through Sept 26, 2021. Then, the program will be streamed on their virtual platform Sept 27-Oct 3, 2021.

Because of the pandemic, most screenings will be presented only at the Winter Park Public Library with limited capacity.

Held at Enzian Theater in Winter Park, celebrate the International Day of Peace at the Opening Night Gala! Directed by Academy Award®-winning director Louie Psihoyos with co-director Peggy Callahan, Mission: Joy – Finding Happiness in Troubled Times will be shown.

Describing themselves as “mischievous brothers,” His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu give a master class in how to create joy in a world that was never easy for them. Consisting of largely never-before-seen footage shot over five days at the Dalai Lama’s residence in Dharamsala, the film invites viewers to join these luminaries behind the scenes as they recount stories from their lives.

We encourage you to buy your tickets early! There are a variety of passes available for both in-person and the streamed virtual program. See details at
