In the spirit of achieving a culture of peace, The World Interfaith Harmony Film Festival has been created to promote and celebrate harmony between all people regardless of their faith tradition or country of origin. The Festival Program will showcase and celebrate the works of independent filmmakers who strive to make a difference in our world by creating films on themes of peace, non-violence, social justice, and environmental balance as these themes pertain to interfaith harmony.
Film producer Vishal is one of a team of three dynamic brothers from one of the most remote parts of India, Mt. Abu, Rajasthan. He taught himself filmmaking and has directed and produced movies and music videos that are worthy to be nominated for a Grammy and more. Never before have three brothers from such a remote part of the world living lives in peace and purity become such service to mankind. This is a story of hope and inspiration.
"The TIME is... NOW" is a film that shows common people trapped in uncommon situations and how they turn out to be survivors instead of becoming victims. These are people from America, Kenya, UK, Israel and Palestine who have survived bombings, torture, close encounters with death and the loss of relatives and friends. These are the people who have survived extreme crises and the only thing they had was their inner power and faith. Critical questions pertaining to these types of challenges (and others) are addressed in the film with the views of War Psychologists, Spiritual Leaders and Missionaries.
So, ultimately the producer appeals to the whole world to make a promise that we will become instrumental in creating peace in the world. This will be our contribution to make our planet a bit better to live.
