The Cause & Effect Baha'i Film Festival
SPIRIT: ALIVE AND ON FILM!
A New Film Festival to Bring The Spiritual to the Silver Screen
"I am extremely interested in anything and everything that has to do with spirituality and social reflection on film" Smith said.
The festival will begin its first year in Edmonton at the Horowitz Theatre at the University of Alberta, November 6th to 8th with panel discussions Friday and Saturday mornings, and screenings through the rest of the day.
The organizers are hoping for a surprising turn out. "We definitely want to keep a level of professionalism, but we are looking for good stories over technical achievements, and as such we hope that everyone feels welcome to submit" explains Rout.
They are calling this first event their 'Chicken and Rice Edition' because it will be so bare bones (without much garnish). "It's meant more to be a place for striving filmmakers and movie enthusiasts to come together, celebrate their achievements and share their work." says Smith, "Maybe even meet the right person for their next project."
