The Airport is situated a slight distance from attractions and lodging due to the enormous amount of traffic it receives on a daily basis. Hotel shuttles &amp; taxis are readily available to accomodate your needs for transport.</p><p>We recommend arranging a hotel shuttle in advance of your arrival, as taxi fare can be unexpectedly expensive. Rental vehicles are also plentiful for single or large groups. </p><p>Recommended and discount lodging details can be found on the festival website: http://peacefestival.us/lodging If your plans include time to take in Orlandos world class attractions, the festival has made arrangements with area tour agencies to assist you with planning and excursion options.

Held in Orlando, this event includes features that attract many interests from government to culture, science, art and business. </p><p>Attendees of the festival will be able to learn firsthand from speakers who have come to present their passion, their lifes work and their legacy with the world. The list of speakers and topics can be found onwww.PeaceFestival.us.</p><p>A total of five tracks have been established to provide relevant and valuable insight into an array of industries. Speakers will present (in person or via Skype) their discoveries, lessons learned and future potential of their respective work in an open forum audience. White papers can also be sumbitted to the festival, submissions will be posted on the event website and shared worldwide.</p><p>The idea is simply this: If one nation has developed something that benefits their citizens, it will most likely have benefit for other nations as well.

Weve considered how other festivals operate and would like to explain a few of our rules:</p><p>1. This is a Peace &amp; Film Festival, designed to bring large, culturally diverse audiences together for a positive experience. This means there will be multiple programs going at the same time. We want your film to show perfectly to the largest audience possible, so please be patient if something needs attending. </p><p>2. Selected films must meet the requirements established in the guidelines: Animation or Family Oriented Features, Shorts, Documentaries or Student Shorts. If youre film is not selected, it does not mean we didnt like it. It means it didnt fit the guidelines or there were other films that fit better into the overall program due to content or available time. We have a limited number of showtimes so everything has to fit. Please dont be offended if you dont make it your first time. Our entry is free, so you can always try again next year.</p><p>3. Were passionate about films and want to support the film makers. Weve invited the entire world to come and participate in the festival, including officials from world governemnts, celebrities, artisits, performers, industry leaders and general audiences. You can help us help you by promoting your participation in the festival via social media and your local news. You can also sign up for news alerts about the festival via our website.</p><p>4. Were tech savvy and will rely on sms alerts to keep everyone aware of whats going on at the festival. We also manage the main e-mail box for the festival and route messages appropriately for action. Well do our best to speak with you directly before and during the events but please understand were a small staff with a large project to move forward. If its urgent, text us. we will respond.</p><p>WHAT WE DONT LIKE: Festivals that require you to Premier your film to be accepted - We have no preference.Festivals that charge fees for on time submissions - If youre late, there is a small charge, thats it.Festivals that forgot about finding great films for their audiences - Were showing great films from around the world. Festivals that dont present Awards - The grand finale of the entire festival includes film awards during a fashion show. </p><p>REqUIRED INFORmATION PRE SCREENING HANDOUTS</p><p>A test screening will be made prior to your scheduled showing. You must be present at the test to prevent improper format, soun...</p></li></ul>
