Religion Today is an international and itinerant film festival dedicated to religious diversity for a culture of peace and interfaith dialogue. 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.
The 24th edition of Religion Today aims to promote a conscious and non-rhetorical knowledge of the religions considering the theme of “Travel and Pilgrimage,” which belongs to many religions.
The upcoming edition will take place on September 22-29.
