Can a 60 second video promote peace and tolerance? A Pakistan-based film festival says yes and an entry from Yemen shows how:

In “I Want the World as I See It,” a young man says, “Peace and hope are prevailing, fire is extinguishing, dew drops are falling, hearts and roses are coming out.” Written and directed by Hashim Hashim, the video won the jury prize in the “peace” category at the 2013 60 Second International Film Festival (60SIFF).

The 60SIFF aims to empower youth and create awareness of global issues to bridge gaps between cultures. Participants can submit entries in 10 categories, ranging from peace to the environment.

The festival is growing. In the first year, participants from around the world submitted 200 60-second videos; the second festival attracted some 400 entries from 40 countries.
