“Faith in Film” Competition

Filed in Arts by on March 24, 2015 0 Comments


With the theme of “The Truth is Out There. Have Faith”, this year’s Insight Student Filmmaker Award challenges the UK’s best student filmmakers to turn their creativity and their passion to exploring what faith and belief means to us today.

Now in it’s second year and generously supported by the Jesuits in Britain, the Student Filmmaker Award is a unique opportunity to explore, critique and reflect on what faith means in the modern world.

All applicants are invited to participate in at least two master classes with award winning filmmakers with the winner receiving a 6-week internship at a Hollywood studio and an opportunity to work on commercial and independent projects.

The Insight Film Festival celebrates, exhibits and encourages filmmakers throughout the world to make films, which explore faith. Since 2007, Insight has created meaningful platforms where films about faith can be screened and critically engaged with. Based in the United Kingdom, Insight is a truly global festival and one of the very few that is dedicated to the exploration of faith in the modern world.

Not a week goes by where we aren’t confronted by questions about what faith, religion and belief mean today. Let’s engage the debate through the most powerful of media – film!
