The organisers said, “We aspire to create a space for the “active nonviolence” audio-visual genre, that this genre grows and fills the biggest cinemas, but above all we need people to enter the competition to create and re-create these nonviolent responses, personal commitment, capable of changing the path of personal and social history.”
