MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The goal of the competition is to challenge filmmakers around the world to create 1-to-3 minute short films that showcase how religious freedom leads to innovation, peace, entrepreneurship, and human flourishing in communities.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Middle East Women’s Leadership Network (MEWLN) and the Religious Freedom & Business Foundation (RFBF) are pleased to announce the Religious Freedom Film Competition.
The "Top 10" films will screen before world-class CEOs and leaders at the 2018 Global Business & Interfaith Peace Awards in Seoul, South Korea, before the opening of the Winter Paralympics. The grand prize winner of the competition will receive $5,000 and a trip to present her work at the awards.
The 1-to-3 minute films should be artful and compelling explorations of the impact of religious freedom (or the lack of it) in the workplace and community. Filmmakers may choose to create short documentaries of real-life business leaders who promote interfaith understanding and peace in their workplace or community, or narratives depicting the painful repercussions of religious freedom denied.
Whether inspired by real-life events or fictional, animated, or experimental, the films should thoughtfully seek to affirm that cultural diversity and religious freedom are good for business.
