SPIRIT FILM FESTIVAL

Films that uplift, enlighten and challenge us. Films that reflect the human spirit, the human existence, and the opportunity to live in peace with our selves, with each other, with our Planet. Films that speak from the heart and awake joy, love and compaction within us. The spiritual cinema sheds light on the quest for meaning and inspiration, and has become a prominent trend in the film industry around the world.
