The awards include: The Most Valuable Movie of the Year, The Most Valuable Documentary of the Year, The International Green Film Award, The Award for Justice, the International Human Rights Award and further Honorary Awards. In addition to bestowing awards, Cinema for Peace is also raising funds for the Cinema for Peace Foundation and other charities.
