Monte Carlo International Film Festival – Our Latest Film Debut, Inaugural Awards Ceremony And 2-Day Youth Conference

9th June 2015

A Tribute to the Story of Adolfo Perez Esquivel

On Sunday, June 14 at the International Film Festival in Monte Carlo, as part of our One Billion Acts of Peace campaign we are excited to announce the world premier of PeaceJam’s Nobel Film Series documentary, “Rivers of Hope.” This is the story of an activist of unparalleled determination, 1980 Nobel Peace Laureate, Adolfo Perez Esquivel, of Argentina. The film shares the story of his unrelenting approach to help the Latin American community through the “Dirty War.”

The documentary will be available in six languages on June 16 via Google Play, but you can take a sneak peek of the trailer here:

PeaceJam Hero Awards Ceremony

Adolfo Perez Esquivel of Argentina will also present the inaugural awards ceremony for PeaceJam’s Hero Awards, which recognizes outstanding service in five categories including Best Youth Act, Best Non-Profit Act, Best Business Act, Best University Act and Best Up and Coming Peacemaker.

Congratulations to our hero award winners!

2-Day Youth Conference

The award ceremony also marks the culmination of a two-day PeaceJam youth conference, where Laureates spend two days working with youth – sharing their experience, skills, stories, and inspiration! Attendees will also hear a keynote by Adolfo Pérez Esquivel, participate in workshops, service projects, and family groups led by university mentors. The event takes place June 13-14 and is open to all youth, aged 13-18. You can read more about the event or register to join here

We are extremely excited for this weekend’s events and applaud all our young leaders. We hope you will join us in working towards a more peaceful future, and stay tuned for the release of “Rivers of Hope.”
