PUMA will present the works of 7 international filmmakers who created original works as open content to be shown at the World Peace Festival 2011. Curated by PUMA.Creative Chief Curator, Mark Coetzee, and produced by Shooting People, the films run at 30 to 90 seconds a piece, and include 35mm live action, experimental animation and fine art. All films are based on the idea that “peace starts with me”.

PUMA.Peace commissioned these films under an agreement with the artists that they can openly be downloaded and shown, without any fees, in an effort to serve as ongoing tools for peace available for everyone. 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.
