The vision

It welcomes participants from all faith backgrounds and none and focuses particularly on young filmmakers. In doing so it wants to make positive contributions to understanding, respect and community cohesion.

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.

➤ It works with partners to provide spaces in which films of faith can be viewed, celebrated, discussed and critiqued.
➤ It rewards excellence in filmmaking, judged by significant industry professionals.
➤ It celebrates the work of filmmakers, especially those who are young and emerging from all faith backgrounds and none.
