Global Cinema Online Is Live!

Global Cinema Online’s launch marks a historical moment in the field of video-streaming services.

HOLLYWOOD, USA, April 15, 2021 — Global Film Studio launches Global Cinema Online universally, the only pay-per-view streaming channel offering quality movies and documentaries that do not contain gratuitous violence. The service, announced by Co-founder and Chief Executive Daria Trifu, went live today.

“This movie channel, in keeping with our company’s brand, is here to bring to the world viewers nonviolent visual content for years to come. As a matter of fact, the primary source of our content is the Global Nonviolent Film Festival where we have direct access to films that don’t contain gratuitous violence, and are rich in quality and topical importance. Global Cinema Online fills a void in the field of video-streaming services, and offers to the public films that give them the possibility to learn more and to open their mental horizon. From now on, every film selected at the Global Nonviolent Film Festival will receive worldwide distribution with very favorable financial terms through Global Cinema Online. I believe that our formula is right, and that it makes for a win-win situation for all parties involved: the public, the filmmakers, and our company”, says Daria Trifu.

Global Cinema Online

is accessible on all computers and mobile devices connected to the internet. There are no territory restrictions; the site is available in all countries of the world. The films are in the English language or with English subtitles.

The new way in which the channel is designed, makes for a very user friendly experience by allowing the viewers to select films by continent (e.g. European Cinema, North American Cinema, Asian Cinema) or by director, in addition to the customary categories by type of film and genre.

“I believe that Global Cinema Online is on the right path. The channel is born today and will grow in time because it gives something that the viewers want. There are older and very big streaming channels like Netflix, Hulu, Apple and Amazon out there, but they don’t exclude violence, as we do. I believe that a lot of people will love the movies we show, and that a lot of viewers will watch our films”, says Co-founder and Chairman Bruno Pischiutta.

The Making of Global Cinema Online: An Achievement to Be Proud Of

By Bruno Pischiutta

April 11, 2021

In my long life, I have been privileged and lucky to reach several achievements: some of my performances and movies got important awards and I had the opportunity to work often with excellent colleagues and artists. What I did in the film industry gave me great satisfactions; most of it was regarding the writing of screenplays, the making of films and film companies. Now, in this very bad period of pandemic, a time when it is almost impossible to produce films and have a normal working activity, I’ve been very lucky again for achieving something that, just a short time ago, was highly improbable: I am talking about Global Cinema Online, an OTT (Over The Top) media streaming channel that, for the first time changes ways and terms used in the film industry and gives some new and necessary choices to viewers and filmmakers everywhere.

Before analyzing certain aspects of Global Cinema Online, I wish to point out that my role in the making of this OTT streaming channel for films was a small one, in the same way that my role in creating the Global Nonviolent Film Festival – the most important and renown nonviolent film festival in the world – was a small one too: it is true that Daria Trifu and I had the idea to create the Festival and the Global Cinema Online streaming channel, but Daria is the real creator and operator of both these two divisions of our company. 

I’m the chairman of Global Film Studio and Daria is the president of the company. My principal jobs are deciding what products we put in production and the actors we contract with our Agency, as well as arranging the financing for the company. Besides that, I write most of the screenplays and I direct most of the films we make. Daria’s jobs are taking care of all what is necessary from the administrative point of view to run the company. She produces and executive produce most of our film products, designs, writes (most of the content), creates and publishes the annual arts, entertainment and business magazine DARIA! (Established in 2005), runs the Global Nonviolent Film Festival, and now runs Global Cinema Online, this new OTT streaming pay-per-view channel for nonviolent films.

Since the Covid time started – in March of last year – and until today, I worked in film financing and in preparing our next productions; Daria worked on the making of Global Cinema Online, we both worked on DARIA! magazine, and on organizing and hosting the Festival that will celebrate its 10th annual edition from September 23 to October 3 this year. In this period, I was privileged to be able to follow, day by day, Daria’s difficult work in making the streaming channel, and to consult her on a continuous basis about the choices and decisions that were essential in bringing Global Cinema Online to reality. 

Global Cinema Online is user friendly and the films are organized by continent: European Cinema, North American Cinema, Asian Cinema, South American Cinema, African Cinema, and Australian Cinema.

I’m proud to announce that, beginning on April 15, the Global Cinema Online movie channel will go live at this link:

globalcinema.online

For the first time in the history of the world’s film industry, two facts become a reality:

  • It is common knowledge that many people, especially in Canada and in Europe, are viewing less and less films because the catalogs of the existing streaming services contain many films with gratuitous violence, low quality films and films that don’t provoke thought but just empty entertainment. Starting on April 15, English speaking viewers in all corners of the world will be able – for the first time – to choose films, documentaries, animation films, docudramas, TV series, music videos and films made by women from a catalog of high quality nonviolent products. As a matter of fact, these films were previously selected at the Global Nonviolent Film Festival, they don’t contain gratuitous violence, and they have the quality and topical importance required at our Festival;
  • From now on, every film that will be selected at the Global Nonviolent Film Festival will be proposed worldwide distribution with very favorable financial terms trough our streaming pay-per-view channel Global Cinema Online.

I’m proud of the little role I played in making Global Cinema Online a reality, and we all should be very grateful to Daria Trifu for this achievement, because the two facts above are game changers.

The first fact betters the experience of the intelligent viewers who wish to see films that give them something from an emotional point of view, or that give them possibilities to know more and to open their mental horizon. 

The films shown on Global Cinema Online may have acts of violence, if they are essential to the plot. What we are against is the gratuitous violence in film, not because we believe that everybody who watches a violent film will commit some act of violence in real life, but we have to think that, when a violent film is seen by a multitude of people, there can be some individuals who are particularly influenceable and already on the edge. It is a known fact that, when a big TV Network airs a film about suicide, the number of real suicides increases. The same of what we think about violence we think about sensuality and scenes with sexual content. The films shown on Global Cinema Online can contain sensual scenes and can deal with a subject on the edge, but every scene in the film, every visual part should be necessary to the plot, nothing should be there for commercial purposes only.

The second fact is extremely new in the industry and a big help for the filmmakers; it makes it more simple for filmmakers to become universally recognized and financially independent. If their film is selected at our Festival – the Global Nonviolent Film Festival, it will receive a non-exclusive and profitable proposal of worldwide distribution through Global Cinema Online.

I believe that Global Cinema Online is on the right path in the present time. The channel will be born in few days and it will grow in time because it gives something that the viewers want. There are older and very big streaming channels like Netflix, Hulu, Apple and Amazon out there, but they don’t exclude violence, as we do. I believe that a lot of people will love the movies we show and a lot of viewers will watch our films. I’m proud of this; even if my role in the making of Global Cinema Online was small, I believe that the fact that I cooperated in bringing it live is one of the biggest achievement of my life.

Emerging British Actress Stephanie Tripp Signs Contract of Representation With Global Film Actors Agency

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

HOLLYWOOD, California — March 7, 2021 — British actress Stephanie Tripp will join young Lithuanian Star Greta Goldling, who was featured on the official poster of the 2020 edition of the Global Nonviolent Film Festival, and transgender Filipina actress Sophia Abella, in the cast of the upcoming feature film Spa, written and directed by veteran film auteur Bruno Pischiutta.

The film, to be shot part in London and part in a touristic resort located by the Aegean Sea in Greece, is Pischiutta’s most anticipated film, and it is expected to be his greatest directing performance since Punctured Hope, the critically acclaimed movie on women’s genital mutilation shot in Africa and qualified for nomination consideration at the Academy Awards® in 2010.

Spa is not a violent film; it has, however, a pushed sexual content that is definitely accentuating its dramatic ending.

Spa will be a landmark in movie history because, as Francis Ford Coppola, Pischiutta is not afraid of risk. In this film, he makes an artistic directorial choice about the casting and is organizing a fabulous and priceless ensemble of talent that remembers the one of Dennis Hopper in Easy Rider.

This is what he says: “Today’s love and sexual relationships are more complicated than ever. They could be interracial and they often involve LGBT characters in a kaleidoscope of different nationalities, traditions and ways.

Love relationships are not caused and motivated by logic but by passion, and the strength of passion gives them life and rules them in a constant fluctuating variation that is always interesting and often surprising”.

For Global Film Studio, Spa will be produced by Daria Trifu, who previously produced Punctured Hope with a US $5.8 million budget and +200 cast and crew members.

Spa will be released worldwide by Global Cinema Online, the company’s pay-per-view streaming service for nonviolent films and documentaries (its own ‘Nonviolent Netflix’).

Bruno Pischiutta is one of the last great Italian directors of his generation and the only one who has lived in America for almost forty years.

Global Nonviolent Film Festival Reveals Its Official Poster for 2020

June 16, 2020 — Hollywood, California — Global Nonviolent Film Festival reveals the official poster for its 9th annual edition that takes place from September 24 to October 4.

Official Poster of the 2020 edition of Global Nonviolent Film Festival.

The poster is created on a concept by film director Bruno Pischiutta, and it features actress Greta Goldling. The original artwork, realized in digital collage method, was made by Daria Trifu.

“The poster advertises the Festival. It is also a freeze-frame that identifies the present year; it will stay there forever and it will be seen for years to come. 

Until now, 2020 has been marked by two historical elements: COVID-19 and the social unrest in America. The people who will view the poster twenty years from now will not need to read the date of the event, but they will be able to visually identify 2020 as the year when this Festival’s edition took place. 2020 is also the year that marks the debut in the international film industry of actress Greta Goldling who, in this picture, reminisces a young Angelina Jolie,” said Bruno Pischiutta, who also serves as the  Festival’s artistic consultant. 

Daria Trifu, the Festival’s director, further explains that “Global Nonviolent Film Festival showcases only non-violent films since 2012. We were the first to create such an international event and, in 2016, to take it on-line so that the whole world could watch the selected movies. As I listened to Bruno describing his vision for the poster, I wanted to incorporate all the elements in a digital collage where they fuse seemingness through colours, shapes and contrasts.” 

In light of the impact that current events have on our world, the film business has to adapt. Some of the most famous film festivals are migrating to virtual platforms, and several premieres by Hollywood Studios are taking place on-line. 

Global Film Studio owns the Global Nonviolent Film Festival and Daria Trifu, who is the Company’s president, had this to add: “We live in a digital world. For our business, it’s never been more universally clear that expanding virtually is the right choice and the best use of resources. Our Company chose this path early, in 2016, when we decided to take our already successful traditional local film festival on-line exclusively. We closed our physical screenings and moved the whole event on-line; it was a bold move that could have gone two ways. 

It went the right way, and we are very proud of the event’s success.”

In 2021, Global Film Studio is launching GlobalCinema.online, its own OTT streaming platform. GlobalCinema.online will showcase feature films, shorts and documentaries to paid subscribers. Some films will be available on a pay-per-view basis so that the platform will be able to host premieres and limited time releases too. Global Cinema will be a competitor to Netflix, and it aims to bring to the world viewers top quality films in every genre with a special focus on non-violent content. The film catalogue will include some of the best movies presented at the Global Nonviolent Film Festival.

Global Nonviolent Film Festival accepts submissions via FilmFreeway. The deadline to submit is August 22. The Festival takes place on-line at www.globalnonviolentfilmfestival.com.
