A Peace Media Clearinghouse launched this morning, a joint project of the US Institute of Peace Center of Innovation for Media, Conflict and Peacebuilding and the Georgetown University Conflict Resolution Program. You can find documentaries, films, shows, podcasts, songs, video games, and other multimedia about peace and conflict management; use them in your work as educators, trainers, practitioners, policy makers, or students; explore a wide range of topics, such as conflict prevention, nonviolence, post-conflict reconstruction, refugees, child soldiers, rule of law, religion, climate change and terrorism and search for multimedia by region, country, media type, and issue area. It looks like they have about 400 resources — many of them free — cataloged to date. This promises to be an incredible resource for those who teach peace.
