SEPT 29TH 2008

After the tremendous success of the first two seminars, Fr. Peter Malone, MSC, will return to Manila in January 2009 to conduct the third workshop on Film and Faith, this time with a week-long Film Festival of award-winning Signis films. Film and Faith 3 will be held at the Communication Foundation for Asia on January 17 (Saturday) to the 24th, 2009 (Saturday).

The seminar, which will be on the theme: “The Search for God in Films”, will run for the first two and a half days, January 17-19. It will feature the search for God through portrayals of priests and nuns on the first day, images of God in not explicitly religious films on the second day and a look at angels and devils on the third day. Festival film showings will be in the afternoons, 3:30 and 6:00 p.m., from January 20-24, 2009.
