Upon leaving office, Tony Blair set up The Faith Foundation – a charity designed to to promote respect and understanding about the world’s major religions. Its global schools programme, Face to Faith, uses technology to connect students of different religions and cultures via a secure website and video-conferences.
The charity launched a global film competition, Faith Shorts, in 2010. This competition asks young people aged 14-27 to produce 3 minute films demonstrating the various ways in which their faith inspires them.
Through these films, young people have learnt directly from one another about different faiths and cultures. The films help young people learn about the variety of opinions within and amongst different faiths.
Faith Shorts would love to receive more short films from all around the world and young people aged between 14 – 27 are invited to submit a short film showing how their faith inspires them.
Faith Shorts judges include Tony Blair, Hugh Jackman, Dawn French and Jet Li.
