Facebook bannerAre you a film student in the UK? Or a student on any course at a UK university or college who’s passionate about making films or writing scripts? Maybe you’re a student who just loves film and have something to say about faith? Or perhaps you are a recent graduate just starting out on a career in the film industry?

The Student Filmmaker Award 2016 exists for people like you.

Whether or not you believe in God, aliens or angels, we know that faith drives people to beauty and violence, peace and rage. Faith gives understanding as much as it fuels our doubts.

SFA2016_Profile_1000x1000We dared the UK’s best student filmmakers – the nation’s future filmmakers – to turn their creativity and their passion to exploring what faith and belief means to us today.

Faith isn’t a monolith – it means different things to different people, which is what makes the Student Filmmaker Award, and the Insight Film Festival so special.

From Exodus to Noah, making films about faith is topical and controversial. At Insight, we don’t care what you believe, but we want you to care about belief.

Insight wants to create a network of talented filmmakers who use their craft to explore this important part of the human experience.

We have an amazing prize for the best entry to the 2016 Award. We want to provide a career-changing, and perhaps life-changing experience for the winner. We also want to bring people at the start of their careers together with those at the top, so that they can learn from each other.
