Dialogue for Peace Outreach:
POEFF Dialogue for Peace Outreach brings the Peace On Earth Film Festival into diverse communities and economically challenged neighborhoods of Chicago. This dialogue-focused outreach program begins with young people, who are often the most affected by neighborhoods rife with violence, and communities where poverty is most prevalent. The program is designed to stir interest in films set in the various modalities of peace, engaging Chicagoans of all ages in dialogue on alternatives to violence, creating an environment of listening, sharing and honoring each others’ stories.

Student Voices for Peace Showcase:
3 – 5 selected films in competition at the festival are shown, followed by an interactive discussion of each film with the student audience. The discussion includes POEFF Directors, as well as filmmakers in attendance whose films were selected for the Showcase

Films for the student audience are selected on relatable themes specific to young people on peace, nonviolence, social justice and an eco-balanced world. Dialogue and discussion includes: establishing best practices of listening to and honoring another’s story, sharing challenges to peace in the students’ own lives, and exploring assumptions and attitudes.
