Film can be a powerful tool for communicating and bringing a message to life. For this week's post we have a video from Sandy Springs Friends School titled "What is Quaker Meeting for Worship?" In this film Spring Friends School members share their perspectives about what it means to gather together in silence in a video produced by SSFS parent Cheryl Crim. The production was made possible by a generous grant from the Sue Thomas Turner Quaker Education Fund.
For students you know who have or would like to explore film making, encourage them to submit works to the Bridge Film Festival (BFF). BFF is an international festival of student made films from Friends Schools and Meeting worldwide that is dedicated to making films that depict Quaker values in action!
BFF provides a forum for dialog, learning, and exchange of ideas of commonality and diversity. Serving student filmmakers across an international network of Quaker educational institutions, the festival is committed to nurturing purposeful filmmaking that communicates messages of conscience. Guided by the Quaker principles of truth, community, equality and peace, the festival gives voice to student expression and recognizes creative achievement.
Deadline for submitting films is March 14, 2014 - To learn more or watch additional films visit ... http://bridgefilmfestival.blogspot.com/
