Dear friends,

Please find attached our final report which includes the latest updates from recent screenings in UK and planned next steps.

  • We had successful screenings in Birmingham and Thatcham in September and October which you had reports on previously.
  • We have had two further screenings in Coventry and Oxford in November and you will find a PDF attached with the IofC UK News Bulletin which has reports from both screenings including photographs. 
  • There was also a small screening in Carshalton which is also written up in the bulletin.
  • The next regional screening is in Sheffield on 19 February and both Imad and Kelly are scheduled to attend and speak there.

With gratitude for your great support,

Dear friends,

The UK premiere of The Man Who Built Peace film was a great success. We hosted two screenings of The Man Who Built Peace in London. The first was on Tuesday 5 June at the House of Lords hosted by the Duke of Montrose. A Labour Member of the House of Lords said that he was ‘extraordinarily grateful’ for the film with its message of ‘turning inside oneself and waiting for the answer to come – and that this is available to us all. 

Over 270 people attended the second London Premiere on Thursday 9 June at the Royal Geographical Society. There was music, discussion from programme leaders at Initiatives of Change, and a Q&A. Concluding the evening, Dr Imad Karam, director, said that he had made the film ‘because Buchman is too little known today, and I wanted to give him back to the world’. 

Since June, screenings of the film took place in Birmingham and Thatcham, with more events planned in Oxford and Coventry (November), Sheffield and Bradford (January/February 2019), Edinburgh and Belfast (to be confirmed).

More details about these exciting developments can be found in the attached report (PDF document).

The film premiere in London was made possible by your donations earlier this year and your continuous and generous support and contributions will help us host successful film events in many UK cities in the next months.

We are looking forward to sharing with you more news soon.

Warm greetings,

The Man Who Built Peace Team

Dear friends,

It’s been a busy few weeks for The Man Who Built Peace project team, preparing for the London premiere event and the following regional tour. But we are buoyed on by the enthusiasm and support we encounter, and are looking forward to a successful launch.

We would love you to join us at the premiere on June 7th at the Royal Geographic Society, Kensington, Yo can order tickets at https://manwhobuiltpeace.eventbrite.co.uk

We are now partnering with a number of organisations, including Seeds for Development, The Next Century Foundation, The Mustardseed Trust, The Guerrand-Hermès Foundation for Peace, Educational Advancement Foundation, Tearfund and Quantum Sobriety.

The key note address will be delivered by Fatima Zaman, a young leader for the Kofi Annan Foundation Extremely Together Initiative. Read our interview with her in Changemakers www.changemakersmagazine.org/extremely-together

We are also holding a screening in Parliament on June 5th, hosted by the Duke of Montrose with an introduction by Carolyn Hayman OBE. This is an opportunity for us to reach a different audience, and put peace building and conflict resolution in the minds of those working in politics.

More good news - The Man Who Built Peace has won The Global Independent Film Awards as Best Documentary for 2018; another award to add to the collection.

You can see our series of short videos with key quotes here:
