Welcome to INTERFILM, the International Interchurch Film Organisation. INTERFILM links cinema and church, cultures and religions.
"Abulele" by Jonathan Geva, a film from Israel, has won the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury in Zlín 2016. The jury awarded in addition a Commendation to "La vie en grand", directed by Mathieu Valepied, France.
The Zlín film festival has since 1961 been showcasing cinematic portrayals of the joys and tribulations of childhood and youth. The selected films came from all around of the world, treating strong subjects of a wide variety. The international perspective provided by a worldwide film selection left a poignant impression of childhood as a universal human experience, says Astrid Skov-Jacobson, member of the Ecumenical Jury in Zlín 2016.
In a sermon held on February 28, 2016, in New York's Judson Memorial Church, Rev. Micah Bucey reflected his experiences as first-time member of the Ecumenical Jury at the Berlinale, and how they relate to the Gospel.
