SIGNIS Jury awards "Argentina, 1985" at the International Festival of New Latin American Cinema in Havana, Cuba
Singapore, August 20th, 2018 (Cinema Desk) - The third edition of this unique Festival will run from 29 August to 30 Sep 2018 and will be held across 3 main venues – Golden Village Cinema Vivocity, Agape Village and CANA The Catholic Centre in Singapore.
Film can be a force for social good and is one of the many ways in which ideas and conversations are brought to life. CANA Film Festival 2018 promises to engage film enthusiasts in a visual extravaganza with themes that inspire discourse on the state of humanity and shed light on social issues through the power of storytelling.
Films that will be screened look to espouse the universality of Catholic Social Teachings through depictions of good versus evil, friendship, hope and disappointments, life, love and loss in the selection of films to be screened. Relish your chance to join and participate in conversations to reflect upon the principles of Catholic Social Teachings.
The openig film willbe The Prayer by Cédric Kahn, a film where a young man, a drug addict, suicidal, is taken to a Catholic rehabilitation centre in the mountains. The filmmakers obviously believe in the power of reflective silence, some contemplation, finding one’s own capacity for prayer whether it be in the gospel tradition, in other traditions, in reflection.
Other films have received Ecumenical awards: On Wheel by Attila Till (Cottbus 2016), Keeper by Guillaume Senez (Kiev, 2016)
