Belief On Screen : 20th European Festival for Religious Television and Online Programmes in Berlin

27 February 2023 (SIGNIS Europe) – SIGNIS and WACC invite TV-producers all around Europe to participate in the 20th edition of the European Festival of Religious Television and Online Programmes to take place from 27th to 30th September 2023 in Berlin. 

The Festival opens a unique window onto the world of religious programmes on television and online-programmes. Usually the Festival is held every three years, but because of Covid epidemic it was last held in 2017 in Paris.  So we are delighted to inaugurate a new era beginning this year in Berlin!

The aim of the Festival is to present and reward the very best of television and online programmes made in Europe that express, explore and examine values in relation to religion, belief and ethics. 

The theme of the Festival is Belief on Screen. Questions of belief, religion, values and identity are posing fundamental challenges to European societies. The Festival is posing questions and looking for answers: How is religious broadcasting adapting to the changed media and social environment? How does it remain relevant and accessible to new audiences in times of uncertainty and growing conflict? 

The Festival is a joint effort of the European regions of the international associations SIGNIS (World Catholic Association for Communication) and WACC (World Association for Christian Communication). The local organization has been entrusted to the German church organizations EKD (Protestant Church) and DBK (Catholic Church).
