Pope John Paul II and Andy Garcia Received Special Award in IFFPIE 2015

IFFPIE awards Man of Peace 2015 to Pope John Paul II from the movie John Paul II in America: Uniting a Continent. This award is given to him because even though the pope has already died he keeps on inspiring people in the world until now. Pope John Paul II once said "There is no country so tolerance in this world like Indonesia� during his visits years ago in Indonesia.

Andy Garcia received Special Jury Award with the movie John Paul II in America: Uniting a Continent. This film was directed by David Naglieri. This movie itself was made to commemorate the 10th year of Pope John Paul II death and his relationships with North and South America.

�Andy Garcia deserve this award because even though he is an A class Hollywood actor but he still wants to do something for humanity including his involvement in this movie� said Damien Dematra, the founder and director of IFFPIE.
