In accordance with the festival’s rules, the list of finalist films for the 6th International Film Festival of Nonviolence Active 2022 was published on 2 September.

The international organising team, from different cities and countries, following the criteria from a humanist approach to rescue the best examples that fit the theme of the festival: “the meaning of non-violence”, has made the following selection of finalist films in its four competition sections (Short, Medium and Feature Films in the General Section and Shorts in the Educational Institutions Section).

Our most sincere thanks to all the participants of the 2776 films registered from 128 countries and to the 1181 films admitted as official selection in competition. It has been very difficult to make such a small selection of finalists.

Although we will initially focus on the screening of the award-winning and finalist films, we hope to be able to reach agreements with all the authors of the “Official Competition Selection” who wish to do so, so that their works can be accessible from the FICNOVA website, or for their screening at events organised by FICNOVA to promote non-violence, free of charge.

We recognize, in this edition, 20 finalist films from 13 countries, as some good examples of the FORCE of non-violence that is growing and transforming the world.

Special thanks to all the volunteer friends from the different teams in various cities of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Mauritania and Spain, who have collaborated in the viewing and selection of works, in their different phases, without whom this task would have been impossible.

In the week of October 2nd, we will celebrate the 6th edition of the International Film Festival of Active Nonviolence, and we will know the winners. After the last gala in 2020 held virtually, due to the global pandemic situation, we rescued the value of being able to bring together all the participants from anywhere in the world; this allowed us to meet and get to know each other. For this reason, the main awards ceremony for 2022 will again be held virtually on Saturday 1 October, followed by local events at the venues.

We will soon publish the calendar of events and invite all those interested to take part in the events.

Thank you very much to everyone and congratulations to the finalists.
