Therefore, the 22th edition's aim is to promote a conscious and non-rhetorical knowledge of the religions considering the theme of mission, which can be found in many religions. 
Besides, this year's Festival encourages the public to relate with the current events and major changes in progress at all latitudes in our societies, between old and new conflicts, unstoppable movements of peoples, globalizing tendencies and identity claims. The work and experience of the missionaries become indispensable tools to understand the current society and the religious pluralism that characterizes them.

Exploring the differences

Since 1997 Religion Today has been the foremost international and itinerant film festival dedicated to Cinema and Religions for a culture of peace and dialogue between faiths, cultures, peoples and individuals.

It promotes a journey “exploring the differences”, both in religious practices and beliefs and in cinematic styles and languages, towards a mutual enrichment through reciprocal knowledge and comparison.

Together with the world cinema competition, open to any film with a religious connection, it offers a platform for exchanging ideas and viewpoints, including a “living workshop” involving filmmakers of different faiths and nationalities.

Every edition presents an “annual theme” and includes special events, academic panels and activities for schools and colleges.

Religion Today Film Festival is realized by Associazione BiancoNero, situated in Trento - Italy.
