Tribe of Heart is a small organization with a staff of four and a modest budget. Yet, with the help of generous donors and dedicated volunteers around the world, hundreds of thousands of people have been reached with the message of our films. With your continued participation in our programs and ongoing financial support, there is no reason we cannot be successful in reaching millions of people in the years to come.
Thank you for all you do to create a more peaceful world, and for being such an important part of the Tribe of Heart community!

At the Santa Fe Film Festival, the support of volunteers and the media helped us fill the house.
Dear Friends,

Peaceable Kingdom is heating up on the film festival circuit! With the nine new festivals listed in this announcement, 21 film fests have now included PK in their programs, with more expected in the coming weeks! As momentum has built around the film's release, word is rapidly spreading in the independent film community, and we are now receiving numerous solicitations directly from other festivals that want us to submit the film. This is a major victory for all the many people who helped Peaceable Kingdom get made and who have worked so hard to launch it into the world!

Now we need your help to make the most of this tremendous opportunity by packing the house at each of these screenings. So, please look over the film fest listings on the left and click on the links to send copies of our e-invitations to your friends in those areas. We have found that email networking is one of the most effective tools for building an audience for this film.

This photo was taken by famed movie critic Roger Ebert in Park City, Utah, where Tribe of Heart and a team of volunteers were promoting a screening of "Peaceable Kingdom" at the Freedom Cinema Festival. Roger posted this photo on his web site.

With the help of hard working volunteers, we have been able to carry out creative publicity campaigns that have attracted larger and more diverse audiences to our festival events. In January, we took Peaceable Kingdom to the Wild and Scenic Film Festival in Nevada City, California, one of the country's fastest growing environmental film festivals. The festival organizers were so moved by the film and the impact it had on their community that they have chosen to include Peaceable Kingdom in the selection of films they are going to take on tour to cities across the US. (Read the audience comments below from this standing room only screening).

At the Wild and Scenic Festival, just as we have seen at many other festivals, audience members who are concerned about social justice, the environment, and world peace were deeply affected by the message of Peaceable Kingdom. Many say that seeing the film changed their lives. Further evidence of the film's growing breadth of appeal is to be found amongst the generous coverage offered by the media in many of the cities where PK has been shown, which has included several NPR interviews and newspaper features. Journalists seem to be as interested in the way concerned citizens are using Tribe of Heart's People Powered Distribution methods as they are in the film itself. Many of them see documentary film as an increasingly important element of our democratic process, and they are impressed with the level of involvement, accomplishments, and diversity of the people working to build the audience for Tribe of Heart films.
On that hopeful note, on behalf of those we serve, we want to offer our deepest thanks to each person who has helped. Together, we are developing a whole new way to work for education and peaceful change. 2005 is already shaping up to be another exciting year!
Warm wishes,
James LaVeck and Jenny Stein
Co-Founders, Tribe of Heart

Audience comments about Peaceable Kingdom from the 2005 Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival:
ďOutstanding! Donít change a thing. The film speaks to environmentalists because it speaks to the heart."

"The film is well done - I only wish everyone could see this."
"Incredible film."
"Thank you for a powerful presentation of such an important issue. Frankly, as someone who grew up on a family farm in Kansas and who has read John Robbins and others on this issue, I already was aware of these issues. And yet, it is easy to let that knowledge drift below consciousness. Thank you for re-awakening me and so many others."
"Excellent film! Powerful!2
"This film needs to be widely seen."
"Beautifully done and edited. Poetic and colorful..."
"Your presence was a wonderful addition and follow-up to the film. I didnít feel manipulated by the film, which I expected. Not sensationalized, just real and honest."
"Animals have always held a special place in my heart. Thank you for helping them! Everyone must see this!"
"This is the most powerful film Iíve seen and I am so grateful that it got created. Thank you! I hope that it continues to be shown all over the world... This film has the ability to ignite the heart into action.Ē
"As I watched this film I was deeply touched and I could not help think what is happening with the Tsunami and the Iraq war. How humans have treated each other and the Earth with disconnect and fear (hate). Thank you for this film."
"Wonderful film. Thank you. Please continue this powerful and important work."
"I work at a wild animal sanctuary and we educate the public about wild animals, and I do environmental work all the time, but obviously I can do more. Thank you for your work."
"Wonderful! Until we affirm life, we will live in the culture of death."
"Thank you for your courage in making this film and teaching people about the truth and compassion we so deeply need."
