‘The Niqab in Schools’ Wins the Cambridge Religion on Film Competition

last modified May 05, 2015 11:28 AM

The Faculty of Divinity is delighted to announce the winner of RE:view The Cambridge Religion on Film Competition.

Billie Coulson responded to the question that linked religion and sociology, considering how an awareness of religion helps understandings of multiculturalism. Her film ‘The Niqab in Schools’ was chosen by a panel of judges from the Faculty of Divinity who were impressed the range of views represented in her film.

This new competition gave sixth form students the opportunity to engage with challenging questions that explored the relationship between the study of religion and another subject area in a creative and expressive format.

Teams or individuals were asked to answer one of the questions by producing a 5 minute film.
