WNV to give award at Plural + film festival

    This Friday, we will be giving the first annual Waging Nonviolence Award at the Plural + Youth Video Festival.

    Plural + is a film festival organized by the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) that honors short videos (1-5 minutes long) made by young people, from ages 9 to 25, that focus on issues relating to migration, diversity and peace.

    Once we have announced the recipient of our award, we will be featuring the film on this site and promoting it to other online publications.

    The awards ceremony will be on Nov. 12, 2010 from 6-8 p.m. at the Paley Center for Media in New York (25 West 52nd St.).

    If you’re in area and would like to attend, tickets are free but reservations are mandatory. Please RSVP at: plural@unaoc.org. I hope to see you there!
