Film Festival

Worlds of (Un)Belief

A Villanova Film Festival


What does film have to do with theology? How do films draw on and transform religious traditions? Can we find the spiritual in the cinema? Through films and lectures, this student-friendly Villanova Film Festival will explore some of the worlds of belief and unbelief thatfilms challenge us with.

All are welcome!
