Fr Richard Nesbitt, Vocations Director for the Diocese of Westminster, said: “The selection panel will be looking for talent and originality in the production of the films and how well they bring to life the themes of ‘The Micah Film Challenge’.” “There are no strict rules about the content or style of the films, but here are some ideas.” “To act justly – a film about a justice and peace project in your school, a local campaign you have been involved in, or a justice issue which you have been studying in one of your classes.” “To love tenderly– a short drama about what it means to love as God loves in our everyday lives, a project you have been involved in to love and care for the environment which is God’s creation, or a music video to bring a song about loving as God loves to life.” “To walk humbly with your God – a film about how pupils express some aspect of the faith in your school life, a biography of a saint (perhaps your school’s patron), a film of a school trip/pilgrimage which helped you to deepen your faith” Fr Richard Nesbitt firstname.lastname@example.org
