The Symbol of Peace, a short documentary that I have worked on for the last year was accepted into film festivals earlier this year including the Peace River Film Festival where it will be screening this weekend on September 23, at 2:00PM, and the MovingMedia Film Festival at Wayne State University.

The Symbol of Peace, Directed and filmed by Zev Vel, will share the inspiring stories and dreams of the people who love the peace sign and have created their own peace signs to display on their homes and businesses.
I was recently contacted and told that my film had made it into the Woodstock Film Festival. I am so excited as the Hudson Va
