Some film makers at the 4th Insight Festival
The Insight Film Festival exists to encourage film-makers throughout the world to make films about ‘faith’. It creates events and spaces where such films can be displayed, discussed and celebrated. It welcomes participants from all faith backgrounds and none and focuses particularly on young film-makers. In doing so it wants to make positive contributions to understanding and respect.
The story so far
Since 2007 the Festival has been inviting and encouraging film-makers to consider the theme of ‘faith’ in their creative endeavours. From a small beginning the idea quickly began to make international impact.
As scientific and technological developments offer increasing challenges and opportunities to the creative processes and to how we think and communicate, there has never been a more important moment to explore the phenomenon of faith.
Faith and film
Faith, for good and bad, has inspired nations, created cultures and moved individuals to action. Few would doubt the potent effect of faith in the history of human development, and its current power to influence.
Film offers opportunities to be inspired, to explain, to share narratives and to understand human kind.
The Insight Film Festival invites those from all faith backgrounds and none to make films that explore this rich strand of human experience.
