The organization of the Film Festival is made possible by the support of Juliette Webber.

The 2021 Parliament of the World’s Religions is less than a month away and thousands of registrants are preparing to join this groundbreaking convening of the world’s interfaith movement. As the Parliament prepared to organize the first ever virtual Convening, the organizers understood that the Film Festival at the Parliament of the World’s Religions would deeply enrich this new platform.

The Film Festival at the 2021 Parliament offers registrants a unique opportunity to enjoy documentaries from award-winning directors like Mission: Joy, heartfelt stories of faith like Spiritual Audacity: The Abraham Joshua Heschel Story, profound stories of justice like Glimpses into the Spirit of Gender Equality, and outstanding interfaith stories like Tango Shalom.

Join the world’s premier interfaith Convening hosted this October 16-18, 2021.
