Love International Film Festival Mission Statement
We live in a world where chaos challenges every nation and every individual equally. Fear of violence, hatred, persecution, misuse of religious and financial uncertainty follows us all. We stand divided in belief, nationalities and even within countries-– ideology. We are a world that often seems bereft of hope or a unifying vision. It is our goal to turn the world’s eyes to the beauty that exist in front of us all. It is my hope that we will play a part in art and creativity returning everyone to the abundance that surrounds us all. When you look at our little planet from space, its singular beauty is clearly seen. Its smallness in the great void should communicate that we all live in one home. This world of ours is exactly that, it is a world of OURS; a place for all of us to share, build and nurture. Regardless of your religious beliefs, I hope you still believe in Love and Peace for all. Lets define God in his purest form as love and peace, and with this new definition, help each other and help build our home in a way that there is enough for all of us.
This is the message of the festival, that through the power of creative energy and the efforts of filmmakers and artists alike, the world can become a unified and beautiful place. Film and the use of images is a powerful medium of change. Even the films with bleak stories are often allegories of difficult choices, much like the fables of old. Film already breaks down the barriers of nationality in production and content. Now films made in little places around the world can leap into large places, and large productions may go to little places to capture their imagination. People from around the world work together to create films.
The festival is an opportunity to acknowledge and reward these global creative efforts. In this wonderfully connected age, the art of cinema can document our efforts on a global scale. Film and filmmakers around the world are capturing the images that educate, guide us, inform us and entertain us.
As this grand sharing continues, Love International Film Festival will become one of those windows you can peek through and see wonders from around the world. I wish all of you love and peace. I wish all of you to become part of the power of love through creation of epic films, art and music, even if your part is simply gazing upon what others have created.
I strongly believe, it is important that we share and explore this world with our younger generations. They have the fire, understanding and the ability to connect globally. They are less prejudiced with what is before their eyes. They desire change and work for it. With this in mind, I have chosen younger creative souls to help and run festival, for they can relate to the views of the younger generation. I give them my support and wish the all the luck I can give on this most important journey. I welcome all, from every nation, who wish to join and help us
