Films4peace, an annual short film commission by PUMA.Peacecurated by Mark Coetzee, features 21 of today’s most innovative contemporary artists, interpreting the subject of peace on film.

Starting on World Peace Day (September 21,  2012), these art films were released globally and online on, in an initiative that encourages the films be screened and shared across the world, through social networking websites, blogs and other media channels.

So we're simply doing our part...

Artists confront us with the challenges of our time... films4peace are both disturbing and inspiring, responsive to the reality of our time but they also ask us to be responsible for our actions. PUMA.Peace wishes to contribute to making the world a better place. A world that is safer, more peaceful and more creative. We are honoured that so many amazing and high profile museums, galleries and online partners have joined us in this important initiative, said Mark Coetzee, films4peace curator. 

The 21 artists invited to create 17 films include artists whose names you should be familiar with, like Isaac Julien (UK), Terence Nance and Hank Willis Thomas (both USA). Others of note include Peterson Kamwathi (Kenya) and Nandipha Mntambo (Swaziland).

The rest: Janet Biggs (USA), Ergin Çavuşoğlu (Bulgaria), Magali Charrier (France), Gregory Crewdson and Costanza Theodoli-Braschi (USA and UK), Yang Fudong (China), Tom Gran and Kayleigh Gibbons (UK), Max Hattler (Germany), Joe Lawlor and Christine Molloy (Ireland), Michael Nyman (UK), Noriko Okaku (Japan), Jacco Olivier (Netherlands) and Bill Porter (UK).

Below, watch each short film contribution from Julien, Nance/Thomas, Kamwathi and Nandipha Mntambo, in that order:
