This most prestigious event hosts royals, dignitaries, humanitarians, sustainable leaders, and the entertainment industry elites under one roof. The annual gala has been called the “royal peace event” in honor of its attendees and even greater contributions. The event is often veiled in mystery as honored guests often use their platforms to address the vetted VIPs, distinguished guests and more than 500 in attendance every year.

Artisans may not have access to production crews or million-dollar budgets. But most have access to their own creative visions and a smartphone. Over the past twenty years creative souls have explored their passions through social media platforms with nothing more than their minds and their phones. AFI World Peace Initiative finds value in the future distribution of film that is developed using smartphone technologies. This exciting new medium brings us new ways of producing exciting new stories that bring creative ideas and stories of purpose to life.
Our initiative pays tribute to the dauntless individuals who strive to create works of art through new innovative approaches and resources. To honor these creative minds, our initiative celebrates this platform by awarding the significant contributions of our future story tellers and movie makers. NGIA is honored to help showcase for the “Cellphone Cinema Humanitarian Awards,” by pioneer Mr. Karl Bardosh, presenter of the AM ONE Smartphone Film Awards in the Marché du Film.
