Designing the Faith: Film

May 19, 2011, in Articles > Videos & Film, by

Creative design has an important part to play in the Faith. There’s a small army of creative Baha’is who labour hard to communicate the message of the Faith on screen and paper. The Designing the Faith series showcases some of their ingenious work in film, fashion, the internet, architecture and more.

Let’s kick off this series with the moving picture. Films can tell stories; they can inspire; they can educate. So we’ll let them do the talking.

Direct Teaching: Plain and Simple

There are 26 more films and videos to see on the DesignTheFaith website, which showcases the creative minds of the Baha’i community. Can you think of instances where you have seen film being used effectively in the Baha’i context? Please share your links, experiences or any new ideas in the comments below – we’re eager to hear your thoughts!
