We are pleased to announce the recipient of the first-ever unRival Award, “Join or Die”! The unRival Award is given annually at the Justice Film Festival to a film in any category which powerfully shows the beauty, difficulty, and value of pursuing justice and peace for all people through nonrivalrous and nonviolent ways of being.
In this interview, unRival’s Research Director Lyle Enright talks with Andy Peterson about the often unjust landscape facing filmmakers who want to tell stories about peace and justice. Andy passionately creates and advocates for new ways of sustaining documentary filmmakers, so they can continue drawing hearts and minds towards a deeper vision of belonging.
In early 2023, unRival Network partnered with Justice Film Festival to host the first-ever JustPeace FilmLab in New York City, a nonrivalrous learning space to bring together storytellers who long to create a better world for all people.
The JustPeace Film Lab hosts filmmakers, students, and storytellers in a nonrivalrous space. Stepping back from competitive environments, participants celebrate the power of transformative, nonviolent storytelling together.
