RE:view The Cambridge Religion on Film Competition
The 2016 Film Competition opened 5 September and will close on Monday 19 December.
This year there is no theme, we are looking instead for creative films that demonstrate why learning about religion is so interesting. For the first time we are opening up the competition to students in Years 9-13.
Either in a team or on your own you should produce a film lasting no more than 5 minutes.
It can take any form, such as a debate, documentary or including artistic elements. We are keen for you to interpret this in a variety of ways and so responses may reflect on one religious tradition or approach it from a comparative perspective; look to answer a specific scriptural question or focus on religion through the lens of literature, history, sociology, language, politics, or science; or it could focus on practices, beliefs or objects.
We expect that students will read around the subject area to inform the content of the film. Any claims should be substantiated and sources quoted in the piece should be acknowledged in a written or spoken form. We would like to remind entrants that permission must be sought to use any image, music or film that is in copyright and if granted, this must be stated at the end of the film. It is not sufficient to provide a link to online content. You can find guidance about what copyright is, what it applies to, who owns it and how long it lasts atYou are also required to include a disclaimer stating that the film is your work and does not necessarily reflect the views of the Faculty of Divinity.
The judges will be looking to reward innovative films that make use of the visual medium to communicate their thoughts. They will not, however, make the award on the quality of the filming or editing.
There is a prize fund of £500 to be awarded to the best entries.
