RE:view The Cambridge Religion on Film Competition
Thank you to all the teams and individuals who entered a film into the 2016 competition. This year there was no theme, we were looking instead for creative films that demonstrate why learning about religion is so interesting. For the first time we are opened up the competition to students in Years 9-13. We had many more entries this year and are delighted to be able to name the winners as:
- Debating Euthanasia: a Christian Perspective - Rebecca Whant and Clara Tuffrey
- A Discussion about the Implementation of Hudud Law in Malaysia - Juliana Ganendra, Srija Ghosh, Isabella Vereker and Elizabeth Lu
- What does faith mean? - Billy Arthur and Tom Dando
- IVF: the fertilisation frustration - Matthew Green, Mackenzie Mully and Andrew Palmer
Highly Commended Films
- Religion vs the World - Jemima Humphries and Layo Edu
- Religious perspectives on euthanasia - Adam Koep, Ellie Cooke and Amy Upot
- Religion and Power - Jennifer Hay
- A creed, a faith, a religion - Nyasha Thomas and Aeronwy Withers
- What is the meaning of life? - Mya, Porsha, Katy and Raabiya
We are able to link to some films, where the creators have given us permission.
The film makers have signed a declaration that states that: the film linked to above is their own work and that permission has been sought and granted for all images, music and film that is not. They have cited all sources used in making the film and any direct quotes. They have received permission from anyone who appears in the film to use their image and (where appropriate) their words for the purposes of this film. This is acknowledged at the end of the film in a written or spoken form.
Please note that the views and opinions in these films are those of the creators and do not necessarily reflect those of any member of the Faculty of Divinity, University of Cambridge.
Thank you to all those who entered the 2015 competition and shared with us your thoughts on the senses and religion.
The winning film was made by Elaine Kim, which looked at the role of the senses in Buddhism. The film is available to view at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NcrYd11DCI8
