PUMA Presents “peace starts with me” Films

PUMA.Peace has commissioned seven international artists and filmmakers to create original works focusing on the strength of personal acts of peace and how each of us can contribute to a better world. The films will be shown at peace events globally, as well as peace games in cities from as far afield as Dubai, Herzogenaurach, Mexico City, Subang, Tokyo, San Diego and many more.

Curated by PUMA.Creative Chief Curator, Mark Coetzee, and produced by Shooting People, these films encompass a diverse range of styles; including 35mm live action, experimental animation and fine art. Conceived as 30 - 90 second films to facilitate online as well as live screenings, the works are based on the idea that "peace starts with me". The filmmakers range from world-renowned award-winning artists, to recent graduates; all were selected for the quality and scope of their work and their sensitivity in interpreting this year's theme.

The films were commissioned under an agreement with the artists that they can be openly downloaded and shown, thus acting as ongoing tools for peace - for all. They are now gifted to the world, and can be downloaded from PUMA's site.
